They're suppressing the data!
If you speed up the changes in the magnetic flux, then play it backwards, you get rickrolled. The pandimensional overlords of the universe are a bit behind the times, joke-wise, but you'd be a fool to point that out.
Venerable spacecraft Voyager 1 has arrived in the most distant part of space that can be considered part of the solar system. NASA has labelled this region of space “a magnetic highway for charged particles” because it contains particles radiating out from the sun along with interstellar particles zipping into our …

The upcoming Curiosity Rover whilst only having a mission thats supposed to last 2 years is expected to continue on for at least 5 more after that.

They don't build them like they used to... :)
I remember when this thing launched. I'm not much of a space buff, but it is always fascinating to read articles about it and the latest chunk of space it is looking at, and to remeber that I was a child when it went up!
Not just this, but it is also going where nothing man made has ever gone before, exploring parts of space that we can only speculate about their behaviour. Soon, this thing will be outside of the solar system's influence, into real space, and we will get a better glimpse into what is beyond.
Personally, I think it will be as Jayne says in Serenity - "Oh, hell. I've been to the edge. Just looked like more space"
at least something of mankind will survive the sun's eventual destruction, even if commities and budget cuts ensure that we don't.
provided it doesn't fall into a star or get eaten by a black hole. but given that [hitchhickers] space is so mind bogglingly big [/hitchhikers] etc. hopefully that won't happen for a while.
