To celebrate Voyager's accomplishments and enduring legacy, we've charted some of the spacecraft's biggest moments.

Mapping Voyager 1's Incredible 36-Year Mission Through Space [INFOGRAPHIC]

Voyager 1 spacecraft's biggest moments are shown in this chart covering the last 36 years. Voyager 1 is almost 12 billion miles away now! and moving at miles per hour!Voyager 1 will be the first ever object we've sent outside our solar system.

Uranus and her rings and moons. The false colors in this image indicate altitude. The green and blue regions show where the atmosphere is clear, allowing sunlight to penetrate deep into Uranus. In the yellow and gray regions, a haze or cloud layer is reflecting sunlight away. Orange and red colors indicate very high clouds, like cirrus clouds on Earth.
