Voyager's legacy: where have all the space games gone?

OXM - Every time you think technology has lost the ability to impress, trapped in a mind-numbing feedback loop of hype and planned obsolescence, think of Voyager 1 - a 35-year-old knuckle of sensors and emitters warmed by clusters of deteriorating plutonium that's now over 18 billion kilometres from Earth, barrelling along at speeds of over 17 kilometres a second. Voyager's mission is partly one of discovery - it has sent back photographs of the larger planets and their moons, including the famous "family portrait", and is one of NASA's few sources of data on the limits of the heliosphere, an impossibly vast cloud of charged particles "blown" outward from the surface of the sun.
