“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Voyagers 1 and 2 reach the edge of the solar system

To me, the Voyager program symbolizes the greatest of human accomplishments....

Designed to last just 5 years, both craft are still going strong after 30 years and have reached the edge of our solar system. That men successfully engineered such complex machines and from them, have learned about our universe, things we would never have known, is a testament to the natural yearning of humans to explore, learn, and expand our boundaries.

And still conducting experiments long after the official mission. Bon Voyage!
