Voyager Mission Quiz and Commentary

Welcome to the Voyager Quiz and Commentary. Since I think this particular pair of space probes represents such an exciting time of planet exploration, and represents a technological triumph that rivals the Apollo missions, I want to emphasize the highlights of the mission by having you go over a bit of the project, its major discoveries, its future, and then offer some thoughts of your own. The left image is the cover page of "The Planetary Report." I am a regular subscriber and member, and when this issue crossed my desk in early September, 2002, I knew I wanted to bring it into my course. By clicking on the cover page, you will be able to directly link to the entire 12 page articles, full of images and interesting comments. The right image below is a schematic technical diagram of the spacecraft. By clicking on that image, you will link directly to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory website devoted to the Voyager project.


This site is where you can record your responses in little boxes that can be sent to me via the internet. If you have questions still unclear, you can go back to the Voyager Mission Recount.
