The women who wrote the code for the Voyager mission
Find us on:

In this episode, a very special guest, my Michalis, joined me to tell him about the women who programmed the course of the spacecraft that went on the greatest voyage of exploration in human history. This robotic spacecraft travels at 17 kilometers per second and it’s more than 24 billion kilometers away into the interstellar space. It left Earth more than 46 years ago, in 1977. This spacecraft is the farthest human-made object from Earth and it has the name … Voyager 1.
