Thanks for the info, Jerry. If JPL's controllers can budget the remaining power in Voyager 1 and Voyager 2's on-board nuclear generators properly, they may still be functional by 2026, or even survive to August and September 2027, the 50th anniversary of their launches. Pretty cool, I think.

Let's hope that in the future the probes don't disappear into a black hole or become target practice for a passing Klingon warship.
