The most distant spacecraft in the solar system – where are they now?

Humans have been tossing things into deep space for 50 years now, since the launch of Pioneer 10 in 1972, and we now have five spacecraft that have either reached or are rapidly approaching the edges of our solar system: Pioneer 10, Pioneer 11, Voyager 1, Voyager 2, and New Horizons.

Most of these investigations have defied predictable fatalities and are still operating long after their original mission plans. These spacecraft were originally planned to explore our neighboring planets, but now they’re making their way out Solar Systemproviding astronomers with unique perspectives into space — and they’ve come a lot in 2022.
