Exploring Our Solar System -. What are the origins of the planets? . Satellite communication stations on Earth make these flights into deep space possible. Pioneer and Voyager: The Outer Solar System and Beyond

Exploring Our Solar System -. What are the origins of the planets? How have they changed? Is there life out there? . The missions are providing insights into the physical nature, chemistry, and biology of worlds outside of ours. Pioneer and Voyager: The Outer Solar System and Beyond. Two series of spacecraft led the way in NASA’s exploration of the outer solar system: Pioneer and Voyager.

Our solar system is a vast place, with lots of mostly empty space between . At sun-Earth L1, the gravitational pulls of the two bodies interact in such a way that a probe can essentially park there.

Our solar system is a vast place, with lots of mostly empty space between planets. But out there are comets, asteroids and more rocky, frozen objects (including dwarf planets) yet to be discovered in the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud. But unmanned probes are also exploring many other solar system bodies, from the sun out to Pluto and beyond. Here's a brief rundown of some of the intrepid spacecraft that are currently sending data home from beyond Earth orbit.

Voyager 2, a space probe launched in 1977, becomes only the second human-made object to enter the space . Image caption The Voyager probes are both outside the heliosphere, a protective bubble created by the Sun that extends beyond the orbit of Pluto.

They say outer space is a lonely place, but a new chart shows that some regions have gotten a bit crowded. It purports to show the positions of all the space probes now at work snapping photos and collecting data in our solar system. Story continues below

They say outer space is a lonely place, but a new chart shows that some regions have gotten a bit crowded. Story continues below. A diagram, updated once a month, of active space missions beyond Earth orbit.

With teacher's guide. Uses animation, live photography, and models of spacecraft and instruments to tell the story of man's efforts to explore the outer regions of space from the lauching of Pioneer I in 1958 to the current program for gaining more information about the moon, the sun, and the solar system. Author and consultant, Willy Ley.
