An Ending: The surface of Triton, photographed by Voyager 2 space probe, 25th August 1989.
Triton was the last Solar System target photographed by Voyager 2; these are some of the last images produced by one of the greatest technological achievements of all time. The decision to pass over the north pole of Neptune and flyby Triton has determined Voyager 2’s path out of the Solar System and into the universe. Forever.
