and is still sending back information and responding to commands! after 45 years of operation.
Currently, it takes 20hours and 33 minuets for a transmitted signal to travel between earth and the spacecraft.
I am still confident of this;
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Ps 27

If they don't know WTF it is, it's a UFO...

Here's the fascinating part...

Voyager 1's data processing capacity is roughly the same as that in the CHIP that protects ONE 'vape stick' 18650 battery... or mebbie not even THAT much.  It's technology that is now so far antiquated

Two systems (plasma spectrometer and photopolarimiter) are defective... 5 systems currently disabled (for any one of many reasons, including power conservation),
4 are still grinding onward.

Digital computers they are... and they haven't had any 'upgrades' in over four decades... still operating.

I can't say that I've got ANY computers here that have survived 10 years without suffering some pitiful failure, but the most frequent 'failure', is 'operating system upgrade'...

It's a good thing today's 'tech' environment wasn't designing Voyager.

And when that signal gets back to earth, it is a 1/0000000000th of a watt, in power.

Dave, I think you'll need to supply us with some proof that the aliens that Voyager 1 will/has encountered speak English for us to believe they call it a UFO. Wink LOL

A big FJB on the side in iridescent paint would be a nice touch.
