The interplanetary probe Pioneer 10 left Earth on March 2, 1972, it was indeed off on a pioneering mission. In fact, the spacecraft led the way to all exploration of deep space.

Pioneer 10 was the first probe to travel through the Asteroid Belt and the first craft to explore Jupiter. On June 13, 1983, it became the first space probe ever to travel further than the Sun's most distant planet.

The Asteroid Belt is a Sun-orbiting span of rocky debris floating in space between Mars and Jupiter. The most distant of the nine known major planets, at the far edge of the Solar System, are Neptune and Pluto.

Since passing the outer planets, despite dwindling power onboard, Pioneer 10 has been sending back information by radio as it heads into interstellar space.

The Pioneer 10 and 11 missions ended in March 1997, their transmissions where sent to NASA as contact was restablished in 1998 and then continued to be apart of the study of advanced concepts of communications within their DSN (Deep Space Network) department. This continued until the last weak transmission in January 2002.

Even though this spacecraft is the first to venture out of our solar system being at 7.6bn miles or 82 AU ((Astronomical Unit) 82 x the distance between the Earth and the Sun which is about 93 million miles).

Pioneer 10 is heading towards a red star named Aldeberan within the constellation of Taurus, this star is 68 lightyears away and will take 2 million years to complete it journey.

What was the first man made object to leave the solar system?

There has never been a man made object to leave the Solar System. There are however, two objects which may escape the influence of Sol and enter the interstellar medium. These objects are the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft. It is currently unknown which will leave the system first, as although V (MORE)

What were the first two space probes to leave your solar system?

Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. There is a matter of some debate as to whether the two Voyager probes have actually left the solar system, an where the "edge" of the solar system actually is. Both are beyond the orbit of Pluto, but have not passed beyond the vaguely-defined Kuiper Belt, and the two probe (MORE)

What are the names of spacecraft of solar system?

Depending on you interpretation of Solar System [See related question] only four craft are/will beyond our Solar System . Pioneer 10 . Pioneer 11 . Voyager 1 . Voyager 2 See related link for a pictorial of their positions.

What was the first formed thing in our solar system?

The Sun. The gas cloud that was falling into its own center gathered more and more hydrogen gas as it fell under gravity. When the proto-Sun was dense enough, hydrogen fusion in the core began and this sent a shock wave throughout the remainder of the gas cloud. This may have halted the collapse, an (MORE)

When was the first solar system created?

There is only one Solar Sytem; ours. Others are referred to generally as planetary systems. However, the Solar System was created roughly 4.6 billion years ago, gradually accumulating into a distinct system.

Spacecraft that has gone beyond the solar system?

Depending on you interpretation of Solar System [See related question] only four craft are/will beyond our Solar System . Pioneer 10 . Pioneer 11 . Voyager 1 . Voyager 2 See related link for a pictorial of their positions.

What was the first planet of the solar system discovered?

The six planets nearest the sun (Mercury through Saturn), easily visible to the naked eye, were known to the ancients, from the time that living beings developed sufficient eyesight and intelligence to notice objects in the sky from one night to the next. The next three, invisible without tel (MORE)

What was the first spacecraft to leave solar system?

Currently, no spacecraft have yet left the solar system. The boundaries of the solar system are undefined, but most astronomers believe it is at the point where the Suns gravitational influence has no effect. This is about 2 light years from the Sun. Voyager 2 - the furthest a man made spacecr (MORE)

Has any spacecraft ever left your solar system?

Not quite, although two are getting close to the edge. The tricky part is figuring out where the solar system ends, and interstellar space begins. The Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 space probes are past the orbits of Neptune and Pluto, but are well inside the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud. But they are ap (MORE)

Who discovered the solar system first?

Copernicus _________________________ Probably Ugghhh the Caveman; the Sun, the Moon, and the Earth are all part of the solar system and they are tough to miss. The ancient Sumerians and Babylonians knew about the five "classical" planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, and knew th (MORE)

Who made the first solar system?

the Greeks around early 600 b.c. constructed a geocentric (earth centered) model of the solar system to explain the moon and planets that formed the beginning of astronomy

What was first made in your Solar System?

First to form was the sun. Without the suns gravity, the other bodies in the solar system wouldn't have been pulled into the sun's orbit. The leftover gas and dust after the sun "turned on" eventually became the planets, sattelites, comets, asteroids, and so on.

When will voyager 2 leave the solar system?

That kind of depends on where you consider the boundary of "the solar system" to be. It's currently in the "heliosheath" and will probably reach the heliopause... which is one reasonable definition of "outside the solar system"... within the next ten years or so. Voyager 1, which is further away (MORE)

What are the first eight planets in the solar system?

The first eight planets in the solar system, counting from the sun are the following: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars. These are called the "Inner planets". Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptunus. These are called the "Outer planets". The asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter forms the boundary between th (MORE)

What was the solar system first like?

The early solar system comprised of a disk of gas which was hot near the newly formed protosun (about 2000 degrees Kelvin) and cooler at further distances. Rocky substances condensed at the higher (inner) temperatures, while icy substances condense at much lower temperatures further out (about 200 d (MORE)

Has the Voyager spacecraft left your solar system?

No. Both voyager 1 and 2 are on their way out of our solar system and will eventually escape one day. They have gone well beyond the furthest planet Neptune, but the solar system extends out much further, with the sun have a gravitational effect on objects as far out as 50,000 astronomical units or (MORE)

Who took the pictures of Neil Armstrong as he was leaving the spacecraft on the moon for the first time?

There was a camera attached to a fold out table called the MESA. When Neil was on the top rung of the LM he pulled a d-ring which unfolded the MESA from the side of the LM. Buzz then pushed a breaker switch inside which activated the camera. From the mission transcript: 109:21:07 Aldrin: Did (MORE)

Why do comets leave your solar system?

Comets have their orbits calculated from measurements of their positions when they become visible. The orbits can be elliptical, parabolic or hyperbolic (all conic sections). The ones with hyperbolic orbits have arrived from outside the solar system and are on a one-time visit, provided they are not (MORE)

Why didn't Uranus and Neptune leave the solar system completely?

The Sun's gravity is powerful enough to hold them in their natural orbits. They are massive planets but that means that the force of gravity is stronger because it is a two-way force that is proportional to the mass of both objects. There are dwarf planets that are a lot further out, and the Sun's (MORE)

How long did it take for Apollo 1 to leave your solar system?

Apollo 1 was an attempt to land on the moon, unfortunately, a fire which killed the crew on the launchpad caused NASA to retire Apollo 1 in 1967. The only human made object to leave our solar system was Voyager 1 which was launched on September 5, 1977 and confirmed that it had left the heliopaus (MORE)

Did Voyager 1 leave the solar system?

Yes and no. On one definition it has. However, on another definition it has not and it will not for thousands of years. That definition is the outer edge of the Oort cloud of comets.

What people first mapped the solar system?

"Mapped the solar system"? Even today, there's still a lot of unknown, "Here There Be Dragons!" parts of our own solar system; there's a lot that we don't know, and we don't understand a lot of what we DO know. Probably the earliest "map" of the solar system would been by Copernicus, but his depic (MORE)
