Voyager 2: A visit to Neptune
In addition to new ideas I decided to finish the paintings I had started so far.
I started this image in May 2018, the shade of blue in the background has changed since then, but the idea of Voyager has remained the same throughout.
The Voyager 1 and 2 space probes were built for a five-year lifetime. Voyager 2 was launched on 20th of August in 1977, 16 days before Voyager 1, and both have now reached well beyond their original destinations, with Voyager 2 becoming the only spacecraft to have studied all four gas giants of the Solar System at close range. Voyager 2 is in 45th year, 5th month and 22nd day of its mission, and travelling 19 930 968 333 km from Earth at a speed of 55 347 km/h through the interstellar space.
