Mission: 
On 13 August 2006
at 21h13 UT, Voyager 1 reached 100 AU from the Sun. Pioneer 10 is at 91.2
AU, Voyager 2 is at 80.4 AU and Pioneer 11 at 70.4 AU. 
Notes: 
On 22 April 1965, NASA selected three industrial
firms with which to negotiate similar preliminary design contracts for
a Voyager spacecraft to undertake unmanned scientific exploration of the
planets: the Boeing Co., General Electric Co., and TRW Space Technology
Labs. The threemonth, fixedprice contracts would each be worth about
$500,000.
