Voyager’s Grand Tour: a Webcomic

Voyager passes by Jupiter

“Voyager”, a webcomic by Jed McGowan

Do you like space exploration? Do you like comics? Then this is for you.

“Voyager” is a webcomic by LA-based artist Jed McGowan about the Voyager 1 spacecraft, launched from Kennedy Space Center on September 5, 1977. Over the next three years it flew by Jupiter and Saturn, taking unprecedented photos of the giant planets and their moons before embarking on its trip out of the Solar System — a journey that it is still undertaking today, over 35 years later. At this time of this writing, Voyager 1 is 18,499,168,000 km from Earth, a distance that takes light over 34 hours to make.

Jed’s wonderful comic has very few words… but really, very few words are needed. Check it out on his blog here.
