U.N. associate spokesman Far-

The foreign ministers of France

LOS ANGELES (AP) -
NASA's Voyager 1 probe has left
the solar system, boldly going

rocketed away from Earth, the

is commonly understood.
"We made it," said an ecstat-
ic Ed Stone, the mission's chief
scientist, who waited decades
for this moment.
NASA celebrated by playing
the "Star Trek" theme at a news
conference in Washington.
Voyager 1 actually made its
exit more than a year ago, sci-
entists said. But since there's
no "Welcome to Interstellar
Space" sign out there, NASA
waited for more evidence before
concluding that the probe had
in fact broken out of the hot
plasma bubble surrounding the

size of a small car, is drifting in

It will study exotic particles
and other phenomena and will
radio the data back to Earth,
where the Voyager team awaits
the starship's discoveries. It
takes about 17 hours for its sig-
nal to reach Earth.
While Voyager 1 may have
left the solar system as most
people understand it, it still has
hundreds, perhaps thousands,
of years to go before bidding
adieu to the last icy bodies that
make up our neighborhood.
At the rate it is going, it would
take 40,000 years to reach the
nearest star, Alpha Centauri.
Voyager i's odyssey began in
1977whenthe spacecraft andits
twin, Voyager 2, were launched
on a tour of the gas giant plan-
ets of the solar system.
After beaming back daz-

ter's giant red spot and Saturn's
shimmering rings, Voyager 2
hopscotched to Uranus and
Neptune. Meanwhile, Voyager
1 used Saturn as a gravitational
slingshot to power itself past
Last year, scientists monitor-
ing Voyager 1 noticed strange
happenings that suggested the
spacecraft had broken through:
Charged particles streaming
from the sun suddenly van-
ished. Also, there was a spike in
galactic cosmic rays bursting in
from the outside.
Since there was no detect-
able change in the direction
of the magnetic field lines, the
team assumed the far-flung
craft was still in the helio-
sphere, or the vast bubble of
charged particles around the
