Tinfoil for the stars, or how kitchen tinfoil saved the Voyager missions

I don’t know what’s more amazing: that they figured a solution so fast… that it worked… or that whenever someone retrieves those probes, some elements in them still will be wrapped in kitchen aluminum foil from a supermarket in Florida. :rofl:


They could have included few slices of bakon and egg on a samwich, for aliens of course. :yum:

Sometimes the most simple ideas are the most brilliant.

Just viewed this Voyager documentary last night. Really enjoyable.

The Farthest(2017)

One of the last pictures taken by Voyager II.
