Change of subject.
CNN has an interesting story on the fate of Voyager 1. For those who dont' know (or have forgotten) Voyager 1 is one of the two Voyager probes that NASA launched in 1977. According to the report, it has just arrived at the edge of the solar system, know as the terminal shock. It is the first probe to reach the terminal shock and, at a distance of 13.5 billion kilometres, the furthest man made object from Earth. In about 40 000 light years time, it'll reach one of the Sun's neighbouring stars.
