Engineers have shifted NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft into a mode that transmits only spacecraft health and status data while they diagnose an unexpected change in the pattern of returning data.

Most interesting. I can't say anything about the reason for this disruption of normal communication channels with the Voyager II for the simple reason that I don't know much about space and astronomy. I just know that the two Voyager craft are carrying a message from earth to any extra-terrestrials who may intercept the craft on its journey. Hope it gets delivered. :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voyager_Golden_Record

Hope they can revive it, not that it hasn't gone well past its sell-by date,,,

Maybe voyager found Nibiru and that is something we must not know as it would affect organized religions. LOL

Amazing -- absolutely amazing! We can do astounding things, why do we murder each other? Bliss and sadness. Tied together.
