Fact of the Day: Voyage to the Ice Giants

The two Ice Giant planets (in our solar system) Uranus, and Neptune were both visited by the Voyager 2 spacecraft in 1986-1989 after being launched in 1977. It is the only space-craft to visit either two of the planets as of 2016.

I bet they were really sad when they discovered that actual ice giants do not live there.
