 Voyager 1 - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
Voyager 1 had as its primary targets the planets Jupiter and Saturn and their associated moons and rings; its current mission is the detection of the heliopause and particle measurements of solar wind and the interstellar medium.
Both Voyager probes are powered by three radioisotope thermoelectric generators, which have far outlasted their originally intended lifespan, and are now expected to continue to generate enough power to keep communicating with Earth until around the year 2020.
Voyager 1 was launched on September 5, 1977 by NASA from Cape Canaveral aboard a Titan IIIE Centaur rocket, slightly after its sister craft, Voyager 2.

 UFO Area Voyager 1 reaches 100 astronomical units from the sun
Voyager Project Manager Ed Massey of JPL says the survival of the two spacecraft is a credit to the robust design of the spacecraft, and to the flight team, which is now down to only 10 people.
As the 28-year-old Voyagers 1 and 2 spacecraft approach the edge of interstellar space, they have found that the heliosphere, the "bubble" within which the sun dominates, bulges outward in the northern hemisphere and is pressed inward in the south.
Voyager 2 is also finding that the shock in the south is a source of low energy ions as was discovered by Voyager 1 in the north.

 Voyager Golden Record - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pioneers 10 and 11, which were launched in 1972 and 1973 and preceded Voyager in outstripping the gravitational attraction of the Sun, both carried small metal plaques identifying their time and place of origin for the benefit of any other spacefarers that might find them in the distant future.
Voyager 1 was launched in 1977, passed the orbit of Pluto in 1990, and left the solar system (in the sense of passing the termination shock) in November 2004.
The record was destroyed by Dinobot to prevent the Predacon Megatron from having the ability to change the future.

 The Voyager Interstellar Record
But the Voyager record is not a CED, as all the information on the disc is recorded in the audio frequency range, and the disc is designed to spin at only 16 2/3 RPM requiring 12 seconds to play back a color image.
The Voyager record is secured in plain view on the outside of the Voyager Spacecraft with a spider mounting to which is also affixed the stylus cartridge used to play the disc.
The symbols around the periphery of the record are a binary representation of the time required for one revolution of the record where a binary 0 is represented by a dash and a binary 1 is represented by the same vertical symbol used with the hydrogen transition above.

Voyager was also the name of a cancelled unmanned mission to Mars (see end of the entry for more information about this).
The Voyager 1 scan platform was scheduled to be powered down in late 2000, but will be left on at the request of the UVS investigator (with the concurrence of the Science Steering Group) to investigate an unexpected excess in UV from the upwind direction.
Voyager is also the name of a series of unmanned probes to Mars which were planned between 1966 and 1968 for launch in 1974-75.

Looking back over the 25 years since the first Voyager launch on Aug. 20, 1977, the twin spacecraft are remembered first and foremost as our emissary eyes in deep space.
One of Voyager's most famous pictures is a view of Earth, called the Pale Blue Dot, taken in 1991 from more than 4 billion miles away.
There are 115 images and a variety of natural sounds on the record, along with music from different cultures and eras (alas, no Eminem, no Britney) and spoken greetings in 55 languages.

Pioneers 10 and 11, which preceded Voyager in outstripping the gravitational attraction of the Sun, both carried a graphic message in the form of a 6- by 9-inch gold anodized plaque bolted to the spacecraft's main frame.
The Voyager message is carried by a phonograph record-a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth.
Each record is encased in a protective aluminum jacket, together with a cartridge and a needle.

The twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft were launched in 1977, passed the outer planets in the 1970s and 1980s, and are, as of late 2003, beginning to leave the solar system.
Voyager 1 may have passed through the termination shock, an area where the solar wind (a thin stream of electrically-charged gas blown from the Sun) slows dramatically in speed because of pressure from interstellar gases.
The twin Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft, which are now beginning to leave the solar system, each carry with them a golden record bearing images, sounds, and music which an alien civilization may use someday to get a better understanding of humanity.

 BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Voyager 'at edge of Solar System'
Whether Voyager 1 has reached the first boundary or is still on approach remains unclear as, scientists provided evidence for both possibilities on Wednesday.
Voyager 1 was only meant to survive five years in space when it was launched in 1977 and yet since then it has been sending back a steady stream of data, including spectacular photographs of the Solar System.
The craft is carrying a time capsule in the form of a golden gramophone record, complete with stylus, which contains a recording of greetings from Earth in different languages as well as samples of music ranging from Mozart to singer Blind Willie Johnson.

The two Voyager spacecraft were identical, and included novel distributed computing systems, with three computers, one of which controlled the Attitude Control and Articulation System.
Probably one of the coolest things about the Voyagers is the Golden Record, described in loving detail in Carl Sagan's Murmurs of Earth, which is evidently out of print (No, you cannot borrow my copy.).

Here is an excerpt of President Carter's official statement placed on the Voyager spacecraft for its trip outside our solar system, June 16, 1977:
At the termination shock, the solar wind slows abruptly from its average speed of 300 to 700 km per second (700,000–1,500,000 miles per hour) and becomes denser and hotter.
