PIA04495: Artist's Concept of Voyager

Artist’s Concept of Voyager


This artist's concept of the Voyager spacecraft with its antennapointing to Earth. The identical Voyager spacecraft are three-axis stabilized systems that use celestial or gyro referenced attitude control to maintain pointing of the high-gain antennas toward Earth. The prime mission science payload consisted of 10 instruments (11 investigations including radio science). Only five investigator teams are still supported, though data are collected for two additional instruments.
