    Greetings, Earthling... ?

    Have aliens hijacked Voyager 2 spacecraft | The Daily Telegraph

    Aliens or not, what amazed me was that NASA can still contact this spacecraft!

    Personally I consider the Telegraph headline one which was written only to grab attention.

    However as you say it is remarkable that these little craft are still going strong after all this time. They have exceeded their anticipated [planned for] lifespan by some margin!

    Engineers have successfully corrected the memory on NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft...

    Resolution appears to have been [in crude terms] turn it off and turn it on again.

    This artist's rendering depicts NASAs Voyager 2 spacecraft as it studies the outer limits of the heliosphere - a magnetic 'bubble' around the solar system that is created by the solar wind.
