A NASA official says he is optimistic that a problem with the Voyager 1 spacecraft that has kept it from transmitting intelligible data for months can be resolved.

[...]

the problem appears to be a corrupted memory unit on the spacecraft. “It’s a part failure on one of the memories and they’re looking for a way to move a couple hundred words of software from one region to another in the flight computer,” he said.

How's it going?

If they can't get it working after all this time, why would it suddenly start working later?

@benjaminIkuta Dumb luck plus sheer determination. It's one of humanity's greatest achievements, I'm sure they'll keep trying until they're certain it'll never come back.

I think it's very, very unlikely. But that won't stop them from trying.

@Pykess "very, very unlikely" 25%?
