Voyager 1 Can ‘Taste’ the Interstellar Shore: "Although Voyager 1 still is inside the sun’s environment, we now can taste what it’s like on the outside because the particles are zipping in and out on this magnetic highway," Edward Stone, Voyager project scientist based at Caltech in Pasadena said. "We believe this is the last leg of our journey to interstellar space. Our best guess is it’s likely just a few months to a couple years away. The new region isn’t what we expected, but we’ve come to expect the unexpected from Voyager."

What a profound and awe-inspiring journey.
