The Voyager Uranus/Interstellar Mission is the continuation of the NASA program of exploration of the outer solar system. The first phase of the Voyager program included encounters with Jupiter and Saturn as summarized in the Journal of Geophysical Research (volume 86, pages 8123–8841, 1981, and volume 88, pages 8639–9018, 1983). With the successful completion of this first phase a second phase was undertaken with the objectives of exploring the Uranus system and investigating the interplanetary and interstellar media. Additional objectives included preserving the capability for extending the investigations to include an encounter with the Neptune system and a search for the heliopause.
