Secrets of the Space Probes


They've discovered water on other planets, and snatched the actual building blocks of life from a comet's tail.

Voyager 1 - the farthest human-made object from Earth at 17.242 billion km, or 10.712 billion miles and currently traveling at 17.07 km/s or 61,452 km/h (38,185 mph)

But can space probes find a new Earth and even make contact with alien life? In the 21st century, space probes are photographing, drilling and even sniffing new worlds in the quest for life and scanning thousands of distant suns trying to detect Earth-like planets. It's only a matter of time before space probes unlock the secrets to extra-terrestrial life and the universe itself.

Reminds me of that first South Park episode. I wonder how many space probes there currently have in space right now. I guess I'm just about to discover!

No space probe will ever reach a nearby star with the technology we are using now. It's too far.
