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.
