Voyaging: Reaching Out

Earth soon won't be able to answer, the headline said. The article in the New York Times was about the 11 months Voyager 2 will not be able to send messages back to earth, but the headline had a completely different context a few days after it ran on March 4. Reading it now, it might seem as if the Earth won't be able to answer, not because the antennae dish in Australia where its transmissions are received is offline for repairs, but because of the complete societal collapse caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus. My reaction after reading the story was a sureness that this would be the last Voyager 2 would ever hear from us. Let's hope in eleven months, I'm not right for either reason.
