A Titan-Centaur launch vehicle hurls Voyager 1 from Cape Canaveral toward its rendezvous with Jupiter and Saturn.
The launch took place at 5:56 a.m. (PDT) September 5, 1977.
[Now Voyager 1 is just about to leave the solar system after traveling for almost 35 years - ed]

It’s incredible to think about. 
The Voyagers, as I’ve said before, are the reason I’m a space enthusiast.
