Voyager 1 and 2 continue their speeding path out of the solar system. In 2003, Voyager 1 reported that it was passing through the heliosheath, a region where the last vestiges of the sun’s influence are felt. In 2010, the spacecraft reported entering the heliopause, an area where cosmic currents overcome the solar wind, and is heading out further, expecting to produce the first data about interstellar space in 2014.

In 1990, NASA engineers had Voyager 1 turn and face the solar system and take a parting shot. Stitched together from several pictures, this image shows the only view of our solar system from the outside. Image: NASA/JPL
Ring Galaxy NGC 922 was formed by the collision of two galaxies which triggered the formation of new stars in shape of a ring. Some of these were massive stars that evolved and collapsed to form black holes. (NASA, Chandra, 12/05/12) by NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center
