It will be interesting to hear whatever they can learn about interstellar space.

On an engineering note, kudos to the Jet Propulsion Lab and NASA engineers for building this probe that has provided more than 40 years of unique data.

JPL NASA , and don't forget Star Trek (veeger lives on screen), and Chuck Berry sings on as a gravitational wave.

Thanks for pointing that out. I'm really looking forward to the New horizons spacecraft sending back some pictures that it may be taking right now? of Ultima Thule. (A 20 mile long peanut)

I understand it will be much closer than it was when it zipped past Pluto and what a show that turned out to be.

A great way to ring in the New year..

..and a hat.. er toast.. off hic. to the programmers responsible for getting the camera pointed in the right direction at the right time.

As Voyager II leaves the solar magnetopause will it be able to sense a glactic magnetic field if it exists? Did it have a sensitive magnetometer on board?
I wonder what the relative angle of sol dipolar field and galactic dipolar field if such a field exists at measurable levels?
I wonder what the angular relationship is between Earths dipolar field and Sol dipolar field? Is it repusive? Attractive? What is the relative latudinal angle of the two magnetic fields. Is it the same as the angle between the rotational axes of the two bodies?
