NASA finds a clue while solving a communications failure aboard Voyager 1

NASA engineers are one step closer to solving a communication problem that left the Voyager 1 spacecraft, currently outside the solar system, unable to send usable data to Earth.

In 2012, Voyager 1 became the first man-made object to leave the solar system and enter interstellar space. For 11 years after this achievement, the spacecraft sent data to Earth Control. This was data detailing how space operates outside the influence of the Sun. However, in November 2023, Voyager 1's communications with ground operators became inconsequential.
