Not often you get to see the end of such an historic mission...and let the Voyagers venture outward

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

What's interesting is that outside of NASA, many people have completely forgotten about the numbers of probes we've sent out "there" over the last half century....until stuff like this comes to fruition!!

Cool stuff no matter how you look at it!

I am a legend in my own mind!
