Voyager is approaching the edge of the solar system:
The two identical spacecraft, launched in 1977, explored the outer planets and are on course to be the first human-made objects to leave the solar system, wherever its outermost boundary. Barring breakdowns, the craft are expected to keep sending back messages until 2020, when the electric power will probably run out.
