NASA & Voyager 2 has become a second spacecraft to enter inter-state space access and Telesgop Radioes Parkes just listen.
NASA named on Tuesday morning at Parkes Dish that Voyager 2 left the "heliosphere" – a defensive throw with her & # 39; sunshine around our solar system – that's about 18 billion kilometers away from the ground and took 41 years of travel.
The Telescope Park Radioes at CSIRO and Canberra's Deep Space Communications Complex (CDSCC) portions marked the escape of their pharmacy from a local area.
The Voyager 2 milestone, which became the second human-pier growth to reach interstate reach, arrived on November 5, but gave several weeks to NASA to find the unique and historical information and consolidate the results.
Pairces telescope will continue to receive data in early 2019.
Due to the Voyager 2 area and distance, the CDSCC and the Parkes telescope are the only facilities in the world that can connect to spacecraft.
Voyager 2 can not record the data on board – it is spreading it directly from the instruments back to the ground, making it necessary to get so many of these vital essentials.
Our solar system is cleaned by "sun wind" – an unexpired currents of myths that will be released by sunrise. This wind will be & # 39; introducing the "inter-state wind", a series of dangerous amusing acne that makes us persistent from a deep place.
As Voyager 2 extends to the boundaries of the solar system, an instrument on board has been in a & # 39; Find a drop in the number of items provided by the sun who hit the craftwork.
Leave it out when he reached an inter-state place. At the same time, severe galactic seizures also risen, show that crafts were outside sun protection.
CSIRO, CEO Dr Larry Marshall, said CSIRO was here to solve the biggest science challenges.
"We are proud of helping NASA to tackle scientific challenge to capture this opportunity once in time as Voyager 2 campaigns to an inter-state place," he said.
"Our team in Parkes has collaborated with NASA on some of the most important human rights and humanitarian actions, including Mars Rover Curiosity and 50 years ago, coming into the moon Apollo 11.
"Our long-term relationship with NASA extends over 50 years, creating solutions from science, and focused on the goal we share to help the boundaries of the research to bring life back on the ground. "
CSIRO, Director of Science and Space Science, Douglas Bock explained how to make the additional support from Parkes on Voyager 2.
"The Deep Space Canberra Communications Company, which CSIRO is working on behalf of NASA, has been issuing command, telemetry and control for the Voyager couple spaceship since it was launched in 1977, "he said.
"NASA has been involved in the 64-meter Parkes Radio 64 telescope to combine forces with a 70 meter CDSCC antenna, Deep Space 43 (DSS43) Station, to get & # 39 ; capture as many scientific valuable data as long as possible.
"Telescope Parkes will be watching Voyager 2 for 11 hours a day while the spacecraft is visible from Parkes.
"DSS43 CDSCC will also study Voyager 2 for several hours both before and after Parkes, which will expand the available survey time.
"This is the most important part of the education of ten years of CSIRO which has a huge complex track of spacecraft and the infrastructure of radio stars."
Voyager 1 was introduced into an inter-state place in 2012, while Voyager 2 has been on a different route through our solar system.
On his way, Voyager 2 has gone on to become famous over Jupiter (in 1979), Saturn (in 1981), Uranus (in 1986) and Neptune (in 1989), returned images and valuable data.
The Pàirces telescope is part of the Breakthrough Listen program, a global campaign for searching technological signatures in the global.
