Who’s visiting who? This chart of solar system exploration shows every robotic space probe currently exploring (or about to explore) a major solar system object… except for the Earth and Sun of course, because there are way to many of those to show on one chart.

It blows my mind that Voyager 2 managed to fly by all four outer planets! The fortunate alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus only occurs once every 175 years.

The unmanned Voyager 1 and 2 probes were launched in 1977 on a mission to visit all the outer planets of the solar system. After 35 years in space, the twin probes are approaching the edge of our solar system.

Nasa has released an image taken by the probe's Visual and Infrared Spectrometer…
