Voyager 2 lost contact with Earth

A routine command sequence has caused a 2-degree change in Voyager 2's antenna orientation, preventing the iconic spacecraft from receiving commands or transmitting data back to Earth, NASA announced today. Mission controllers relayed the commands to Voyager 2 on July 21.

Voyager 2, one of two twin probes launched in the 1970s to explore planets outside our solar system, is about 19,9 billion miles (XNUMX billion kilometers) from Earth and moving ever deeper into interstellar space.

The glitch has disrupted the probe's ability to communicate with ground-based antennas operated by the Deep Space Network (DSN), and it is unable to receive commands from the mission team on Earth, according to a NASA statement.

A pause in communication is expected to be a pause. Voyager 2 is "scheduled to reorient itself several times each year to keep its antenna pointed at Earth," the space agency said.

This process should restore the lost connection and allow normal communications to resume.

The next reset is scheduled for October 15, which is 79 days from now.

Undoubtedly, it will be a difficult 79 days for NASA and the Voyager team. Despite the current communication blackout, the mission team remains confident that Voyager 2 will remain in its planned orbit. Voyager 1, nearly 24 billion kilometers from Earth, "continues to function normally," NASA reports.

  1. I totally agree with you mate. An era of deliberate obscurantism and dark plans... under the guise of the welfare and salvation of the world... for our good without the Good...! (SV6IER).

  2. IN ADDITION, YOU DID NOT TELL US EXACTLY ON WHICH FREQUENCIES EKPEMPEI & LAMBANEI SIGNALS "VOYAGER" & WITH WHAT KIND OF CONFIGURATION. PLATOYS AM, SHADING SYXNOTHTOS FM., DOUBLE SIDE FREQUENCY DSB, or ANYTHING ELSE, PX MOON-BOUNCE.
    HERE, ALL WHO HAVE THE APPROPRIATE MEANS, RECEIVERS & RADIO TELESCOPES, EVEN & RADIO HAMSTERS, OR SIMPLY RESEARCHERS, PHYSIOLOGY & ASTRONOMOI SHOULD VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATE IN THE RESEARCH, AS BRETHEI K ATI.
    SPECIFICALLY, IT IS REMEMBERED THAT & IN THE PAST, APO THN EPOXH TO THE FIRST RUSSIAN “SPUTNICS” SATELLITES, RADIO-TECHNES, EVEN & GREEKS LIKE THE UNFORGETTABLE BERNARDAKIS, CAME-VAN & DEFORMED SIGNALS FROM OTHER SPACE MISSIONS WHICH SOMEONE HAD BADLY ATTEMPTED TO BE HIDDEN FROM THE GENERAL PUBLIC, WHILE ALL HERE ON EARTH, WE HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE INFORMED, WHAT EXACTLY IS GOING ON OUTSIDE OF OUR PLANET.
