|I don't see that there's any accomplishment in its leaving the solar system. It's essentially just coasting. It was eventually going to happen. What was accomplished was done years ago when it sent back pictures and data of Jupiter and Saturn and their moons and, to a lesser extent, the fact it's exceeded it's anticipated life and is still able to send back data. |
As far as remembering it being launched, no I don't. I was a kid during Mercury and Gemini. The whole country stopped what it was doing when one of those went up. So voyager's launch was no big deal. But I did think it sent back some fantastic pictures.
