For nearly 50 years, Star Trek has been one of the most dominant forces in pop culture. Trek’s history stretches beyond the shows themselves, because Gene Rodenberry’s vision of the future has inspired generations and broken boundaries. Want to learn more before next year’s anniversary? Look no further.
A quarter of a century ago this weekend, the Voyager spacecraft took one last, long look back before shutting down its camera for its interstellar mission. The 60 photographs from 6 billion kilometers away comprise our first solar system portrait.
In the early '80s, Voyager did a flyby of Saturn's moons and sent us back some tantalizing, but garbled, photos. Now, those same pictures are giving us one really great reason to feel pretty good about just what we might be able see in the next few decades.
Fan theories can be wonderful and strange, but sometimes a fan will come up with an idea that's even better than the official story. Here are just some of the fan theories that actually make a lot of sense—and would actually improve the stories they come from.
Now I want to see this treatment for all of the series.
The folks at Chop Shop are crowdfunding a series of posters dedicated to three of NASA's most awe-inspiring interplanetary robotic space missions: Voyager, Cassini/Huygens, and Curiosity.
Star Trek Online's upcoming expansion firmly puts the focus on Star Trek: Voyager. Alongside returning to the Delta Quadrant, the Art team have had to tweak the ship's LCARS cutaway schematics to better suit their needs - giving us our best ever look at the inner workings of the Federation's finest Intrepid-Class ship.
We begin (and end) in one of Carl Sagan's favorite virtual environments from the original series: the Library of Alexandria. Sagan used the Library as a cautionary tale about what can be lost when a civilization is careless with its knowledge, but Tyson uses it as an inspirational story.
An Italian scientist has taken 37 years worth of data from both Voyager space probes and turned it into music. The result is surprisingly good.
Over 35 years ago, NASA launched Voyagers 1 and 2 into space, and with them two records filled with a variety of sounds and images designed to be a crash course in human experience. Today, we want to know what you would want to send into space to tell other civilizations about Earth.
Joe Hanson shrinks the solar system to a relatable scale in the latest episode of "It's Okay to be Smart."
According to NASA, both the existence of our solar system's tail and its general shape have now been confirmed, which... wait – our solar system has a tail?
The Voyager 1 spacecraft has entered into a turbulent and dynamic region of space that's once again resetting our notions of what's out there at the edge of the solar system.
"There are a lot of bad robots in the world(s)" reads the tagline over at Robot Shaming, our new favorite Tumblr. "We try to keep them in line."
Hidden in the episode Star Trek: Voyager "Imperfection" is the fate of the Bartlett Administration from The West Wing. As you can see, the gang met a grisly end aboard a futuristic spaceship. On a happier note, we're excited to see that Donatella Moss has outlived the rest of the gang and is probably running a planet…
NASA's Voyager 1 is the most far-flung object ever launched, having spent the last 35 years putting upwards of 11-billion miles between itself and the Sun, soaring through space at speeds approaching 11 miles per second. Now, the Agency reports that Voyager has entered an entirely new region of space at the fringes of…
Voyager 1 has been steadily working its way out of the solar system, and it now appears to have entered into a completely new region of space. NASA says it'll only be a matter of time before the spacecraft exits the solar system completely, becoming the first human-made object to enter interstellar space.
