Out of nowhere the warnings flashed red on his screen. David cursed as he ripped his oxygen mask from his sweat drenched face. He couldn't get timing closure on the design.

NASA brings Voyager 2 fully back online, 11.5 billion miles from Earth

Thanks to some (very) remote engineering work by NASA, the intrepid explorer's science mission is back on.
