Twitter index: Voyager 1, 'Insidious 2'

On Friday, September 13, Twitter users are talking about the unmanned spacecraft Voyager 1 and the forthcoming horror film "Insidious: Chapter 2."

Scientists have announced that Voyager 1 has exited our solar system, becoming the first ever manmade object to do so.

The craft was first launched in 1977 to explore the distant outreaches of our solar system and is now around 19 billion km (12 billion miles) from Earth.

Elsewhere on Twitter, "Insidious: Chapter 2," the sequel to the horror movie "Insidious," is trending after hitting cinemas in the US on September 13. The film, once again, follows the fortunes of the Lambert family, who once again fall victim to paranormal activity.

"Insidious 2" was directed by James Wan and stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne as Josh and Renai Lambert. A trailer can be found at youtube.com/watch?v=fBbi4NeebAk.

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.

    5 Unanswered Questions About Jesus

    As Christians worldwide gather for Easter to celebrate their belief in the death and rebirth of Jesus, researchers continue to delve into the mysteries that surround the man. The following are five questions about Jesus that, for now, at least, remain unanswered. In 2008, astronomer Dave Reneke argued that the Star of Bethlehem (a celestial event long associated with Jesus' birth) may have been Venus and Jupiter coming together to form a bright light in the sky. Other researchers have claimed that a similar conjunction between Saturn and Jupiter occurred in October of 7 B.C.
