Humanity's most distant spacecraft is returning strange signals from beyond the solar system
Voyager 1, launched in 1977, is relaying odd telemetry data baffling scientists
In 1977, NASA launched a space probe named Voyager 1 into the cosmos.
The planet is still humming along nearly 45 years later, much to the delight of astronomers around the world.
In fact, Voyager 1 has left our solar system, and now it is giving off strange readings that scientists are trying to figure out.
As the farthest artificial object in space, Voyager 1 probably has something to do with the mystery.
Voyager 1 passed through the heliopause in 2012 at a distance of 14.5 billion miles from Earth.
It is the barrier between the Sun's solar winds and the interstellar medium, or all of the matter and radiation that exist between the solar systems in the galaxy.
As a result, Voyager 1 is actually in the Milky Way interstellar void.
