NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft, currently over 24 billion kilometers away from Earth, has been sending back confusing messages since mid-November 2023. Stamatios "Tom" Krimigis, who oversees an onboard instrument, shared his concern, saying, "Frankly, I'm very worried." Meanwhile, Suzanne Dodd, Project Manager for the Voyager interstellar mission, called the issue a "serious problem," as the spacecraft is sending alternating 1s and 0s instead of binary code.
