    I think the more likely explanation for Voyager is that it's just starting to break down.

    It's really a spacetime reflection of my mom's lab-mix's stomach.

    I think we should fire up the robot head of Alan Turing to figure out the Voyager problem.

    Isn't it more "an actual hole in a gas cloud"? Ok, the cloud is in space, but it's not like the space is missing. It's like saying a plane crashed due to a hole in the atmosphere when what you actually mean is that the windscreen got broken.

    I'm more interested by the Voyager message. Put it online, let the geeks decode it.

    And that's why kids need to keep taking math and science classes. In 20 years, who's going to be translating our 50-year-old digital communications fuck-ups?

    Of course, by then the machines will have taken over, Singularity, blah blah blah, we'll just innately understand all math ever, etc. But still, it's probably going to be a handy thing to study while we wait for our inevitable robot doom at the hand of V'ger.

    Jesus. A third of a century down the road and the thing's only half a light-day away.

    The Voyagers are probably the fastest moving human built objects in existence by now though. Which is pretty cool.

    probably? i cannot think of a single man made object that even comes close. i think it is safe to say it is the fastest.
