Pioneer Trajectory with Labels
Looking toward the Solar System, we see the trajectories of the Pioneer (green) and Voyager (yellow) spacecraft. Pioneer is traveling away from the center of the Milky Way and in the year 2050, will be 28 light-hours away (1 light-hour equals 670 million miles or 1 billion kilometers).
