How far can Voyager 1 go before we lose contact?

76012 ratings | 3277305 views
The Voyager space probes are the furthest man made objects from Earth. With Voyager 1 being 21 Billion Kilometres from Earth, communication with the Space probe relies on the Deep Space Network. But how far can Voyager 1 go before we lose communication? This video looks at how we communicate with Voyager and when it will eventually stop receiving our signals.

Hopefully the voyagers will carry on and on as a monument to Human discovery

nuclear power sucks.

Voyager 1 should have another satellite as a relay/signal booster. The satellite should be near the border of the Solar System. Voyager 1 should be able to collect more data longer.

What if we find a thing like voyager, thats billions of years old and its from humans 😱. Humans that existed billions of years ago from some planet we never heard of but on the craft is a disk like we put on voyager. It would be the greatest discovery ever made.

Nasa should send one voyager after the other . I mean Send voyagers in a series after every 10 year . So they pick up signal from each other until it reaches earth.

It will take 30,000 years to get out of the solar system. Understood as the sun's gravitational influence limit. The space is huge.

How the Voyager 1 traveling in the space without getting hit by space Debris so long ? Who controlling the Voyager 1 so it could escape from the things which is coming in it's way? When any flights get lost, why we find hard most of the time to find it with all highly signal stuffs installed inside the flight? Examples are vary... It's hard to believe that they receive signals from the object which is billions of km away from earth, scientists have no profit in telling lies but they don't have any loos either in telling lies. Anyway...

Learning To Follow (4 days ago)
@Isaias Morales That is a position which we should all want to be in. Someone who's mind was freed and in turn wants to free others. We do live in a type of matrix. While it's not a computer simulation. It is about programming minds. And even though we're all born into this prison. The inmates, who don't want to truth, for whatever reason will defend the prison they are imprisoned in. Church, politics, the educational system, TV programming, movies, all play their part. There is an awakening happening. For whosoever wants to wake up. Who we are has been hidden, where we live has been hidden, and who God truly is has been misrepresented.

Learning To Follow (8 days ago)
@J C You mean indoctrinated. The truth is outside of the matrix. Seek and you will find. Or you can be another talking head. Regurgitating the same ol same ol. Sounding like everyone else. I ask ready know what the system teaches, and was a believer like yourself. But, there was always something that didn't seem right to me. It didn't feel like the truth. Especially when it can to cosmology. My major was in meteorology. I ate it up. As yourself and so many do. But, I wanted the truth. And the truth as what I found. You have the right to go on believing as you were told. Or you can ask questions. And desire the truth. I'll ask you a question. Why can you see to far. I mean way.....to far on this globe model that's taught. You don't have to answer. You can just come up with something coy.. And keep on trucking with your indoctrination. It's always our choice.

Apple must have made the Voyager 1 space ship. Do you know why? Because when it reaches the star in 40 years, and never to have been seen by any human ever before, Voyager 1 will have a flat battery. Yep like the damn iPhone just when you need it, batteries dead. We won't be able to see it. ha ha.

If I remember correctly the other Voyager lost Communications capability for unknown reason and then 38 years approximately later began transmitting again. Can you do a presentation on that.
Odin Doloroso Pontanos (28 days ago)
I hope that someone/something out there can pick up the signal or the machine and say "Humans, you are not alone in this Universe". I also hope that their civilization are more superior that us and save our dying mother earth. 😢
David Zoller (28 days ago)
I hope someday when humans have the technology to retrieve voyager we don’t, and leave it alone to drift forever as proof of our existence.
California Dreaming (28 days ago)
I believe that any signal such as this decays as a function of k / r ^ 2. Light, heat, everything behaves this way in 3D space, I believe because the area of a surface of a sphere is approximated by the denominator here. So, if this is correct, every second, as Voyager travels, the signal decays pretty quickly, quicker than linear, that’s for sure. But it’s amazing we’re still “hearing” Voyager at this point because “he’s” been journeying for so long now. Voyager, may the Force be with you.
