Scientists faced a problem with fuel residue that seemed to accumulate in the engines’ narrow tubes. If left unresolved, the duct can become blocked. Engines are needed for Maintaining contact with the Voyager probe. Thanks to them, it can rotate and the antenna always remains directed towards the Earth.
To slow the buildup of debris in the narrow fuel lines, engineers allowed the probes to orbit a little farther in each direction, reducing fuel consumption. Impulse start frequency.
As for the program, a patch has been uploaded to protect the probe from the defect that struck Voyager 1 last year. The computer started to freak out and load Status reports are incorrect Although it continues to function normally. It turned out that the Expression and Attitude Control System (AACS) was routing commands incorrectly and, instead of executing them, stored them in the computer’s memory.
Voyager mission which included Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are included It was only supposed to last four years. It focused on research related to Saturn and Jupiter, but the mission was constantly expanding. Voyager 2 finally reached Uranus and Neptune, relaying data collected along the way.
In the 1990s, NASA decided to expand the Voyager mission to allow probes Starting an extraheliopause expedition. The heliosphere is the region surrounding the Sun, somewhat like a bubble, where the influence of the Sun dominates. The pressure of the solar wind overcomes the pressure of the galactic wind. In 2012 Voyager 1 exceeded this limit, while Voyager 2 did In 2018.
Investigations throughout the mission They constantly send invaluable data Collected at the edge of the solar system.
