Voyager 1 beams back images of our planet as it explores the furthest fringes of the solar system
It has clocked up an astonishing 11billion miles in its 35-year journey.
And now, as the spacecraft Voyager 1 explores the furthest fringes of our solar system, incredible images of the Earth have been beamed back from a camera on board the probe.
This tiny dot, amid a band of coloured rays, is our planet, as seen from staggering distance of 11,100,000,000 miles away.
Voyager 1 has reached the our solar system’s final frontier and is poised to cross into interstellar space.
The probe has also beamed back incredible images of the Jupiter Moon Io, showing a volcanic plume.
Last month, Voyager 1 signalled it had passed two of the ‘key changes’ expected when it passes out of the furthest fringes of our solar system.
