Voyager 1 is the
spacecraft launched by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) on September 5, 1977
With these 45 years
in space, Voyager 1 has become the most distant spacecraft humanity has ever launched.
NASA set out
the mission to explore the outer planets of the solar system.
However, to the delight of
astronomers, the spacecraft has gone far than what it was aimed for and has entered interstellar space, traversing past Pluto in 2012.
For all this time
the Voyager has been in space; it is continuously sending information about its journey to the scientists.
NASA's scientists have detected
the glitch with the spacecraft's attitude articulation and control system (AACS). The readouts from the AACS is not reflecting what is happening onboard.
