Voyager were sent out past pluto to deep space to see what was past our solar system and to study our planets when it was on its way to leaving our solar system.

One of the voyager crash on its way the other voyager has left our solar system searching for new plants out of our solar system.

Technologies Used

The voyagers used rocket pads to get past our orbit

It use's a big dish to send infomation to NASA

more boostes to make them go

computer to send infomation to NASA as well.


1The vayager has Discoved moons around in our solour system and infomation about the plantes

3It is on its way to Discover new plants out of out solar system.
