The Voyager spacecraft was launched 25 years ago this week, to take pictures of the solar system, especially of planets Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Jacki Lyden and John Ydstie send a letter to the Voyager probe, thanking it for a quarter century of new information about the universe. NASA scientists still receive data from Voyager daily.
