unched in 1977 to explore Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, the two Voyager spacecraft continued their journeys beyond the planets as they searched for the edge of heliosphere, the giant bubble of wind surrounding the sun.  Beyond the bubble lies interstellar space, the space between the stars filled with matter from the explosions of other stars and by the magnetic field of the Milky Way.  After a thirty-five year journey taking it eleven billion miles from the sun, Voyager 1 became the first human-made object to enter interstellar space.  Voyager’s journey of discovery continues as it begins to explore the space between the stars.

Edward C. Stone is the David Morrisroe Professor of Physics at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) (1994 to date) and Vice Provost for Special Projects (2004 to date). He was Director of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (1991-2001). Since 1972, Stone has also served as the chief scientist for the Voyager Mission at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.  Following launch of the twin Voyager spacecraft in 1977, he coordinated the efforts of eleven teams of scientists in their studies of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.  He continues to coordinate five teams of scientists as the Voyager spacecraft explore the outer heliosphere in their journey to interstellar space.
