Adding the deep space probes to Stellarium

Registered by ironman on 2015-08-16

Would it be possible to add the deep space probes Voyager s 1 & 2, Pioneers 1 & 2, and along with the latest probe New Horizons to Stellarium, by displaying there locations and giving information about there distances and on where there positions are in our sky just like the satellites around the Earth?
