After much anticipation, the Voyager 1 spacecraft has finally, officially crossed into interstellar space. Or, depending on how you conceive of the solar system, maybe it hasn’t, as Andrew Grant explains in a fold-out map of the sun’s neighborhood on Page 19.

Science News has reinvented itself many times over the decades (SN: 5/10/08, p. 30), and while our latest incarnation pushes us into the digital future, our mission remains unchanged: to translate the latest advances of science into an easy-to-read form.
