This Animated Tribute to the NASA Voyager Space Programme Is Simply Stunning

By Casey Chan on at

Launched in 1977, the Voyager 1 and 2 are still exploring interstellar space today. Both probes have flown by Jupiter and Saturn while the Voyager 2 has made its way to Uranus and Neptune too.

The Voyager space programme has travelled further in space than anything ever has and serves as a wonderful reminder of how much farther we can go. Santiago Menghini made this short tribute to the program using animation and real archival footage to stitch together a poetic story of its ongoing journey.

The film actually uses real photographs and plasma frequencies received by the voyager crafts. It’s like we’re out in space, seeing and hearing everything the voyager crafts do.
