Voyager Probes to Leave Solar System by 2016

The stage is set for the first man-made objects to leave the solar system within five years. Voyager 1, followed closely by Voyager 2, left Earth in 1977 and both have been traveling at a rate of about 37K per hour toward the edge of the known solar system.

While the Voyagers have left the planets well behind, they're not beyond the solar system yet. They're still within a huge bubble called the heliosphere, which is made of solar plasma and solar magnetic field
