Silicon-germanium (SiGe) thermoelectrics have been used for converting heat into power in spacecraft designed for deep-space NASA missions since 1976.
The Kuiper belt, occasionally called the Edgeworth–Kuiper belt, is a circumstellar disc in the outer Solar System, extending from the orbit of Neptune (at 30 AU) to approximately 50 AU from the Sun.
Below is a list of artificial objects leaving the Solar System.
This is a partial list of Solar System objects by size, arranged in descending order of mean volumetric radius, and subdivided into several size classes.
This is a list of space probes that have left Earth orbit (or were launched with that intention but failed), organized by their planned destination.
New Horizons is an interplanetary space probe that was launched as a part of NASA's New Frontiers program.
An occultation is an event that occurs when one object is hidden by another object that passes between it and the observer.
