Nasa has gotten a transmission from a spacecraft that is 13 billion miles far from Earth.
It utilizes little thrusters to control itself a trip through space, terminating them in minor puffs which last milliseconds at once.
Looking for some hot stuff? I fired backup thrusters for the first time in 37 years, and they worked like a champ. This could extend my life 2-3 years. https://t.co/N0pF3nvOkO pic.twitter.com/V35vMbrHCr

“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.
