That's the right way to use nuclear power ! not to kill people, but to get them closer to the stars...

It would be amazing if we knew the exact time it left the solar system. The first man made thing ever to do that is an exciting event.

The problem is that "the edge of the solar system" continually has to redefined, largely based on what the Voyagers discover. We'll know when they get there.

oort cloud? which is about 1 light year away? Voyager wouldnt ever leave the solar system for the next thousands of years. i ont think voyager has crossed Sedna's orbit yet

since sun exerts gravitational force on sedna and oort cloud. i doubt voyager has enough in to escape sun's gravity,if it oesn't , it'll probably sucked back in, never to leave the solar system

Don't we have to wait til it leaves the oort cloud? That extends about 1ly from the center of of the solar system. We've got another 17,538 years until that happens!
