And I have sometimes wondered what it must be like for Voyagers 1 and 2, out there all alone in the vastness of the outer rim, cold and dark, as the electrical output of their RTGs gradually fades and their peripheral systems are switched off one by one- each robbing the spacecraft of yet another sensory mechanism.

Finally there will come a time when every sensor has been switched off and the vehicle has drifted so far away from earth that not even our most powerful radiotelescopes can communicate with it. And yet, for some years after this, the generators will continue to produce just barely enough power to sustain its onboard computer. And it will drift aimlessly through the cosmos- blind, deaf and effectively mute, unable to perceive the infinite blackness around it or communicate with its makers. A lone mind, more isolated than any other throughout all of space and time, adrift in the galaxy.

I can imagine no worse kind of hell.

Best save ever.

For the uninitiated, turn 12 at Road Atlanta is at the bottom of a steep hill, off camber, and very fast (100mph+ in this case), into a narrow gully between two concrete walls that line the edge of the track. For reference, my buddy looped it here into the inside wall and then rolled twice - in HPDE2, no less. It is treacherous.

I almost screwed up! on Vimeo

And now the view from three cars back:
