Well I can say that at least in the next 100 years the life on mars seems more likely to me, because well the next star is pretty far out there^^

how mush more power will be Voyager 1 if we did  today?

if curiosity has germs and bacteria on it, will it leave those on mars and will life be on mars? even without an atmosphere?

Voyager already passed right by an alien. It just didn't recognise it as an alien.

wow i cant imagine Anthony without beard!

Voyager 1 isn't even capable of detecting life… Let alone function long enough to do so… 

Walid Zammouchi March 21, 2014 - 6:44 AM

I know that this question probebly not going to get any response but how can it transmit data when it is that far away from our earth and from any satiliet i just want to know how and how long does the data takes to reach us.

my money is on europa. I think mars it rather dead nowerdays and Voyager is a long long long way from the nearest star, 

Roger Kreil March 22, 2014 - 2:06 AM

I think that the life is 100 meters to a kilometer underneath the Martian surface.  And Voyager is still too far away from another star to encounter another civilization.  Maybe they will find it 100 million years from now though.

Please tell me why this isn't true! /watch?v=MEwbfnCpKA4

Iron Manatee March 28, 2014 - 10:54 AM

Mehps April 4, 2014 - 5:07 PM

i think we should be sending like 1000 of these in all directions.

kanevsjolt April 9, 2014 - 4:36 AM

I that by the time voyager gets anywhere promising an entire intelligent civilization with have developed in that time. Possibly.

I think this happened

In 1970's

NASA: Ok Voyager 1, your going to study Saturn, and Jupiter and others!

Voyager 1: ok!

In 1980,

Jupiter: psst! Hey! you!

Voyager 1: What Jupiter?

Jupiter: You do realize you're not anything big, you just are gonna look at me and send pictures. That's not kinda cool.

Voyager 1: Well what is cool?

Jupiter: Leaving the solar system.

Voyager 1: Ok! I'll do that!

Jupiter: Oh and if you see Neptune and Pluto tell them that Jupiter wants his Apple computer back.

Voyager 1: Ok?

Questions: If it's going to be 40,000yrs before voyager gets anywhere notable should we go fetch it when nasa develops their warp drive engine? ?

kiatuna20 September 10, 2014 - 3:15 PM

in ways this machine is amazing. 35 year old technology still working and 19.5 billion km away at the same time

StormyHotWolf88 January 30, 2015 - 9:17 PM

I don't really know why but Voyager has always made me excited! I couldn't wait for those pictures of Pluto, but jeez does time fly.

Courtney Bennett February 4, 2016 - 4:14 AM

Mikey Grabon December 1, 2016 - 3:27 AM

I'll say voyager leaving the heliosphere is cooler.

Foop December 6, 2016 - 8:48 AM

Vu Khoi April 15, 2017 - 8:43 PM
