What Voyager saw: a journey in photographs #scio13


On the plane to North Carolina. Clouds! Photo taken by me.

I spent this afternoon at a workshop on Rapid Media Prototyping, as part of ScienceOnline 2013 in Raleigh, North Carolina. So in the spirit of the session here is a rough and ready thing that I made...

It's a timeline of photos taken by both Voyager spacecraft on their trip through the outer solar system and towards interstellar space. I used Timeline JS and a Google Docs spreadsheet, and all images and dates are taken from Wikipedia's Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 pages. Most images were taken by Voyager 1 or 2 and all belong to NASA.

Let me know what you think! Would you like to see a more complete version?
