Goodbye, Pioneer 10!

NASA press release

Pioneer 10, the probe that took photos of Jupiter and became the first human-made object to pass the orbit of Pluto, sent its last detectable signal a bit more than a month ago.

I remember reading a bit about Pioneer 10 and 11 as a child and find it very exciting that they were probing the outermost reaches of our Solar System.
