    The Voyager 1 spacecraft left the solar system to become the first man-made object to reach interstellar space. Launched on September 5, 1977, 16 days after the launch of its twin, Voyager 2, the Voyager 1 spacecraft still communicates with the Deep Space Network to receive routine commands and return data, despite its distance.
