Scientific data from the Voyager-1 probe comes back

More good news has arrived regarding the Voyager-1 probe launched in 1977, as two of its instruments are once again providing science data. A few weeks ago, we reported that for the first time in several months, it became possible to carry out a correct data transmission with the spacecraft, which was preceded by an error phenomenon, as a result of which Voyager-1 began sending a signal to Earth that contained no scientific or technical data. The team participating in the mission currently consists of two equipment (Plasma waves detection instrument, magnetometer) He works to recalibrate it, that is, to develop the steps leading to it.

On May 17, scientists sent commands to the 46-year-old spacecraft, allowing it to send scientific data back to our planet. This is almost. It took 22 and a half hours, the same time it took for the signal to reach Earth, so the team had to wait about two days to see if said commands were successful. In order to restore “normal” operation, they are also working on two additional tools, called CRS (cosmic ray subsystem) Subsystem, the LECP (low energy charged particles) On detector.
