3. NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft crossed into interstellar space
The craft has officially traversed beyond our sun's influence, into interstellar space! Also called "the space between the stars," interstellar space is defined as where "the sun’s constant flow of material and magnetic field stop affecting its surroundings."
The milestone makes Voyager 2 the second operating spacecraft in human history to go interstellar after the Voyager 1 spacecraft accomplished this in August 2012. NASA will be closely monitoring Voyager 2 for further developments, especially since Voyager 2 contains "The Golden Record," an introduction of elements from human culture that may be discovered by other life forms should they find the probe.
