They’ve been cruising through space for the last 34 years and soon, the Voyager probes will be the first man-made objects to exit our solar system.

It has been several decades in the making but after logging billion of miles of intrasolar travel Voyager I and Voyager II are extremely close to breaking free from our solar system and cruising into interstellar space. Check out the video above to learn more about the probes and marvel at the vast distances they’ve traveled.
