Magnificent Journey—The Odyssey of Voyager I and II

Magnificent Journey—The Odyssey of Voyager I and II

After all this time.

Thirty-seven years, to be exact.

And, with a push of a button, a flick of a switch, a set of backup thrusters, not used since 1980, have awakened.

Your thrusters worked perfectly.

Whenever we’ve asked of you, you’ve always delivered.

You—Voyager I and II—are two of the biggest inspirations in my life.  You’ve given me hope, and promised all of us a brighter tomorrow.

Not because of what you’ve achieved, or what you, perhaps, might achieve in the future.  But because of all the things you allow humanity to hope for.

I believe we will one day reach the stars.

I also believe that you will reach them too.  Conceivably, before us.

I know you’re just metal, and a series of components and mechanisms.  But to me, you are so much more.

I wish you safe travels.

I—the Great American Storyteller—bid you Godspeed.
