Voyager 1

Voyager 1

Voyager 1 is an ancient space probe that was used by NASA to study Jupiter, Mars and the outer planets of Sol. It launched on September 5, 1977. In 3301 it was rediscovered 2.1 million LS out from Sol.[1] It's identical to Voyager 2.

Both probes include the Voyager Golden Record which is a recording of sounds and images of life on Earth. It has sounds of nearly all languages on Earth and was designed by a team lead by Carl Sagan to communicate with extraterrestrial life.[2]

Locations Edit

Voyager 1 was found at the following locations, as determined by its distance from Sol, Sedna, and Persephone.

You must be within a 1,000 ls radius to be able to find the two Points of Interest markers, "Ancient Probe" (the actual vehicle) and "Voyager", its associated tourist beacon.

Based on the table above, the position of Voyager 1 is growing farther from Sedna at an average rate of 4.93 ls/day (SD = 0.33 ls/day) and growing closer to Persephone at an average rate 9.56 ls/day (SD= 0.66 ls/day). This can be used to estimate the current position precisely enough to get within 1000 ls of Voyager 1.

Tours Edit

Personal assistance is available to Commanders attempting to locate the Voyager 1 probe:

  • CMDR ethzero. By prior arrangement for PC-based Commanders only, will act as a long-range location marker using a Wingman Beacon Signal. Contact: DM 'ethzero' via Discord
