The comic's tagline describes it as a "Stick-figure strip featuring humor about technology, science, mathematics and relationships"


Since July 2012, there has been a branch of xkcd called xkcd What-If, which is updated every Tuesday.

NASA’s Voyager 1 has passed the heliosphere and into the interstellar medium. NASA knew the spacecraft had reached this point because of the vibrations of interstellar plasma detected by Voyager's antennae. The sounds were recorded using an onboard plasma wave instrument, which detected the vibrations of dense interstellar plasma, or ionized gas, from October to November 2012 and April to May 2013.

The Voyager I & II Spacecraft have sent back recordings from Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. You can listen to​ some more space sounds here.
