No, I'm waiting for it to appear on dvd.

It comes from 20 years ago I attended a seminar given by the lead on the Voyager 
project, and his discussion on how they developed the software and fixed bugs in 
it and drastically improved it while it was traveling was fascinating. For 
example, they figured out how to boost the resolution of the cameras with a 
software improvement.
