    For how long will we still be able to communicate with the amazing Voyager 1?

    Hi Lars Hansen. welcome_bike.gif

    If you click on the ≡ symbol at the top right of your screen you will find the PF SEARCH facility where a search on titles can discover discussions on the Voyagers. There is sure to be a recent discussion where you can learn much, and ask questions.

    Good luck!

    According to wikipedia, around 2025-2030 Voyager 1 will no longer be able to power any instrument. I assume that includes the transmitter, but I'm not sure.
