The journey began on August 12, 1978 from Cape Canaveral on a Delta II launch vehicle.
Now after 36 years and 30 billions miles of travel around the Sun �
as well as a crowd-funded reboot of the spacecraft and a foiled attempt to put it into Earth orbit �
the ISEE-3 has completed a return visit to the Earth-Moon system.
