Voyager 1

In 1977, NASA launched the spacecraft Voyager 1 into the void. Some circumstantial planetary alignment meant that the probe was slingshot past our solar system, set on a course of interstellar exploration. Forty years later, the Voyager 1 mission now marks the furthermost point of humanitys reach into our universe. Still transmitting data back to earth, Voyager 1 pushes the boundaries of human exploration with each passing second.
I have a personal fascination for the Voyager missions, and wanted to make a display that captured their spirit.
When the display flashes a number, it represents the distance in miles between Voyager 1 and earth, an objective measurement for the possibilities of human imagination.
The display pauses for a brief moment, and then updates.”
