Ed Stone joined Caltech's faculty as an assistant professor of physics in 1967, and five years later was asked to helm the NASA mission that would become Voyager.
Ed Stone was reluctant to take time from his teaching and research work at Caltech, but agreed to become project scientist for NASA’s Voyager mission, which explored the solar system before becoming the first mission to ever reach interstellar space.
As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the launch of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft, Stone reflects on his work at Caltech and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and on the breakthrough discoveries that inspired his team and future generations to explore the solar system and beyond.
