Voyager 1 stops communicating with Earth


If Voyager 1 stopped communicating with Earth, the most likely cause would be a malfunction in its communications systems. The spacecraft is more than 40 years old and has traveled far beyond our solar system. Therefore, it is possible for things to go wrong. Other possible causes could include damage due to cosmic radiation, cosmic dust, or other debris, loss of power, or a problem with its trajectories or attitude control systems.
