Voyager - Mission Status
I could have sworn KUSC FM's Alan Chapman said that Voyager 1 was multiple light years away during his program on the morning of Monday, November 13, 2017. Ridiculous! But how far IS it? Turns out it's pretty easy to get a handle on that, and even for two different frames of reference: distance from the Earth, and distance from the Sun.
