I don't think that Voyager 1, reaching the edge of the solar system, would be the trigger for aliens to contact us. If they have been watching us,
then I am sure they have seen it headed in that direction the entire time. I don't see why it would matter to them that our unmanned probe has
breached our solar system. That doesn't mean 100% that they would not decide to contact us, because of it, it just has that unlikely feel to it.
There could be many proposed ramifications from the probe exiting our solar system. Their limit is on limited by our collective imagination.
Maybe the probe will be prevented from leaving by some previously unknown, but fully natural force. That's just the first thing that comes to my
mind, when putting thought to the unexpected things that could occur. Maybe it won't be able to function properly due to the conditions of
interstellar space. Possibilities are endless, and remain possible, until the results are proven.
I think it will get there, and keep on going.
