NASA’s Voyager 1 at the Final Frontier

At the edge of the solar system, Voyager 1 is reporting a sharp increase in cosmic rays that could herald the spacecraft’s long-awaited entry into interstellar space.

Two weeks ago NASA ran an article suggesting that the Voyager 1 spacecraft may be the first human-made object to enter interstellar space, this 4 minute video is a follow-up to that article.

  1. You’d think that scientists would learn how to pronounce kilometers properly.
    There’s a rule for that.

    Metric MEASUREMENTS, have the accent on the first syllable:
    DEC-i-me-ter
    MILL-i-me-ter
    CENT-i-me-ter
    MILL-i-li-ter
    KIL-o-grams
    MILL-i-gram
    KIL-o-me-ter
    etc.

    Measuring DEVICES have the accent on the second syllable:
    ther-MOM-e-ter
    tach-OM-e-ter
    bar-OM-i-ter
    speed-OM-i-ter
    ped-OM-i-ter
    o-DOM-e-ter

    So, the way the narrator pronounces it – kil-OM-e-ter, would mean a device that measures, not a distance.

    I know, I’m a little OCD when it comes to that. 🙂
