A Pioneer 10 Anniversary

On this day 33 years ago the Pioneer 10 spacecraft became the first man-made object to pass beyond Pluto’s orbit and out of our solar system. The craft sent back the first close up photos and direct observations of Jupiter. The last faint signal from Pioneer 10 was received in 2003, but it continues to travel further into space. It is headed toward the star Aldebaran in the constellation Taurus, and should reach it in about 2 million years.
