After 35-year trip, NASA’s Voyager is Entering Deep Space

It has been an almost impossible journey for the Voyager space craft, being launched in 1977 when the technical side of space travel was in its infancy, but somehow the craft managed to do its job and a whole lot more than was ever expected of it. Voyager is now poised on the brink of interstellar space and is still on the job sending back more unexpected data.

NASA scientists say Voyager 1 has actually reached those borders, a previously uncharted region that acts as a highway for magnetically charged particles between the magnetic field lines of our own sun and the field lines in interstellar space.
