Scientists Want to Send Fastest-Ever Probe Outside Our Solar System
Scientists are dreaming big with a new mission to leave our solar system????Researchers from Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Lab????want to make the fastest-ever space probe to reach interstellar space????and maybe even another star????So far, Voyager 1 is the only spacecraft to make it that far out????but it took 35 years to get there and doesn’t have a clear mission????To get there in decent time, we need a spacecraft to hit 200,000 miles per hour????Voyager 1 is traveling less than a fifth of that speed????Besides leaving our solar system, scientists want to look back and learn more about it too?? ??The goal is to go interstellar no later than 2070??
