    Voyager is the farthest human-made object from people and the first object to cross the heliopause (leave the solar system and enter uncharted interstellar space) Voyager was launched 35 years ago. How can we connect people to it and tell the story of the Voyager mission?

    Challenge Description

    • Create a data visualization, tool, interactive graphic, or even a physical object that explores and humanizes the Voyager mission.

    Functional Specifications

    Given the openness of the challenge, there are no specific functional requirements, other than that the project involves the Voyager mission. Here are some examples to get you started:

    • Create a visualization that puts in to scale how far away Voyager is from earth.
    • Create a visualization that shows and details important events in the Voyager missions (when it passed certain planets, collected important images)
    • Create a model of the Voyager spacecraft (kid friendly)
    • Create a tool that allows easier look up, and a better visual, of the Voyager location data
    • Create an API for the weekly Voyager reports.
