Oil painter since 2015. Previously architect, public sector manager, web designer, retailer, steel fabricator’s assistant, cleaner – more about Patrick Taylor »
There are many Patrick Taylors. I am only one of the probably hundreds in existence. That’s just on Earth. In the whole Universe, there will be trillions at the very least. You can read about me on ‘About Patrick’. If you think you know me – or knew me at one time – and would like to reminisce, feel free to get in touch.
Voyager 2 is a space probe launched by NASA on August 20, 1977. From beyond the heliosphere the signal from Voyager 2 is still beaming back, taking more than 16 hours to reach Earth. Its 22.4-watt transmitter has the same power as a fridge light. Its signal is more than a billion billion times dimmer by the time it reaches Nasa’s 70-metre antenna. The probe will continue through space long after Earth is swallowed by the Sun.
