Between and , the Voyager spacecraft visited all of the solar system's outer planets except Pluto in a singular journey of discovery. He provides both background on Voyager 's earlier discoveries and the difficulties of adapting an aging spacecraft to enable it to function beyond its design capabilities as it transmitted its findings over an unprecedented distance.
His detailed account of the scientific results will be of interest to specialists; however his dry and sometimes repetitious writing style will likely discourage casual readers.

This unusual configuration has led to the belief that Triton originally orbited the Sun before being captured in orbit around Neptune 1 , 2 , 3. Existing models 4 , 5 , 6 for its capture, however, all have significant bottlenecks that make their effectiveness doubtful. Our model predicts that Triton was once a member of a binary with a range of plausible characteristics, including ones similar to the Pluto—Charon pair. McCord, T.
