    Voyager 1 probe becomes first man-made object to leave solar system[W:16]

    From CNN:

    NASA's Voyager 1 probe has become the first man-made object to enter interstellar space, the U.S. space agency announced Thursday.

    Scientists report they have strong evidence that the unmanned spacecraft has crossed the magnetic boundary separating the solar system's sun, planets and solar wind from the rest of the galaxy. The announcement comes more than 36 years after the unmanned spacecraft lifted off on a journey that gave humans close-up views of Jupiter and Saturn before heading toward deep space.

    So how long until it comes back to earth and suped up, kicking the butt of everything that comes in its way? Couple hundred years in Star Trek land isn't it?

    That's awesome! (Glad we are still beating the Russians at something.....)
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Wait. I thought you believe the sun orbits the earth. I'm confused.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Yes, that's obvious. :p

    Well, you blithely dismiss other established scientific concepts.

    How does it relate to the OP? Well, how could something leave the solar system if the solar system is not a solar system?
