Dave Naughton asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Pre-GPS, seafaring navigators used magnetic compasses and before that they used the stars to find their way.

My question is:

How do space-travellers navigate in our solar system and how is Voyager 1 navigating in interstellar space and beyond?

Loved Chris' visit to Primedia.

Regards

Dave Naughton

What do you think?
