Voyager 1 was launched in 1977 and departed the solar system in 1989.
It will lose communication in 2025 about the same year project manager
Ed Stone is expected to live to and work at age 89 at CalTech.
It's a good thing they took the shortest route to the bow shock edge!

NASA's Voyager probes, which were launched in 1977, are now approaching
the very edge of our Sun's influence, more than 14 billion km from Earth
and they are still returning data.
ESA's GOCE spacecraft collected exceptionally accurate gravitational
readings for 4 years (2010-13) resulting in this gravitational map of Earth.
The "geoid" illustrates how Earth would look if its shape were distorted
to make gravity the same at all places on its surface - zones of intense
gravity are sticking out while areas of reduced gravity appear as depressions.
