NASA Reestablishes Contact With The Voyager, Almost 12 Billion Miles From Earth!

44 years: That’s how long it’s been since the Voyager 2 space probe left our blue home planet to subsequently gain new insights into our galactic neighborhood in the endless expanses of space. During this time, NASA’s unmanned spacecraft penetrated an incredible 12 billion miles into space and passed numerous planets of our solar system during its flight.
While Voyager 2 has regularly sent important data to Earth over the past four and a half decades, the connection to the world-famous probe was severed for many months in March of last year. We will now reveal the reasons for this and how the experts of the renowned space agency finally managed to restore the signal to Voyager 2.
However, before we get into this topic, we would like to take a look at the spacecraft’s history together with you. In today’s video, you’ll find out which celestial bodies the probe has already visited during its decades-long flight, which galactic milestones have been recorded in the process and what the future of the venerable space vehicle looks like.
