You may have read this morning that the first man-made object has passed into interstellar space in the form of the Voyager I probe, but what you might not have known is that Aussie scientists helped get it over the line. Here’s how.
When you think of Canberra, you think of stuffed shirts, public servants and big flagpoles.
