    Summary

    "These beings, with soaring imagination, eventually flung themselves and their machines, into interplanetary space." So says Carolyn Porco. With Voyager 1 and 2, we are about to fling our machines into interstellar space. We are nothing but a pale blue dot, a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam - and the Voyagers just keep showing us how tiny we really are.

    Summary

    You'd like to think the magnetic highway is the open road: a '67 Camaro with the top down, Quadrophenia blasting from the speakers, wind in your hair, a gorgeous girl in the passenger seat. But there's no Camaro out here seventeen light-hours from the nearest Exxon station. There's some fucking exciting magnetic particles, no lie, flavored like supernova. But the solar wind's died down and you can't hear Pete Townshend's voice in hard vacuum.

    Elinor remembered the slow drift from humanity to wild animal, like falling asleep listening to music until only the drumbeat remained.
