   This is a hand made replica of the Voyager Spacecraft. Two Voyagers explored Jupiter and Saturn taking numerous pictures and measurements. After Saturn, Voyager 1 continued to interstellar space. Voyager 2 went on to Uranus and reached Neptune in August of 1989.

It is an authentic piece of U.S. Space History.

   The voyager spacecraft is similar to the ones that have explored Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Because they traveled nearer the Sun than Voyager, these earlier spacecrafts could be powered by solar electric panels. Too little sunlight reaches the outer solar system for the Voyagers to use this power source. Instead, they were equipped with Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generators (RTG's) that convert heat (generated by radioactive decay of plutonium) into electricity which then powered it's onboard systems.
The Voyagers were designed with large antenna which were 3.7 meters (12 feet) in diameter to transmit data over great distances. The Voyagers have transmitted data from as far as 5.7 billion miles.

Voyager was a two-spacecraft mission to the planets:

Jupiter
Saturn
Uranus
Neptune

  Instruments aboard the craft allowed studies to be done of the structure, composition, and dynamics of the planets atmospheres, their magnetic fields and radiation belts, and the surfaces and atmospheres of their satellites.

Voyager 1 travels approx. 1 one million miles a day. Launched in 1977, Voyager 1 and its twin, Voyager 2, were the first craft to explore the outer planets of our solar system. Voyager 1's mission ended in 1980 when it completed its observations of Saturn.

Voyager 1, which was launched by NASA on September 5, 1977, passed Jupiter in March 1979, Saturn in November 1980, and continued on a trajectory that took it out of the Solar System above the plane of the planets. Voyager 2, launched August 20, 1977, reached Jupiter in July, 1979 and Saturn in August 1981. Following a gravity assist by massive Saturn, Voyager 2 continued on to explore Uranus in January 1986 and Neptune in August 1989. Pluto could not be included in Voyager's tour because its orbital position was out of range of the spacecraft's path. The alignment of the outer planets that made such a "grand tour" possible will not occur again until the year 2157.

The model we have is museum quality, has a certificate of authenticity and is constructed within it's own display case.
