    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] The Voyager program is a continuing American scientific program that employs two robotic probes. Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, to study the outer Solar System. They were launched in 1977 to take advantage of a favourable alignment of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, and are now exploring the outer boundary of the heliosphere. Although their original mission was to study only the planetary systems of Jupiter and Saturn, Voyager 2 continued on to Uranus and Neptune, and both Voyagers are now tasked with exploring interstellar space. Their mission has been extended three times, and both probes continue to collect and relay useful scientific data.
