Nasa has gotten a transmission from a spacecraft that is 13 billion miles far from Earth.

The Voyager 1 spacecraft test has been zooming through the void for 40 years and is the only human rocket going through interstellar space, the depressing spread of nothingness between stars.

It utilizes little thrusters to control itself a trip through space, terminating them in minor puffs which last milliseconds at once.

“With these thrusters that are still functional after 37 years without use, we will be able to extend the life of the Voyager 1 shuttle by two to three years”, said Suzanne Dodd, project manager for Voyager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, metro.co.uk reports.
