The precise whereabout of NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft has become a point of contention in the scientific community after Astronomy professor William R. Webber of the New Mexico State University released a statement yesterday announcing that the spacecraft managed to exit the main part of our solar system, but other NASA scientists have countered the claim by saying the Voyager 1 appears to be traveling in "the magnetic highway" somewhere in the outer heliosphere.
