Here's another view of Jupiter for old time's sake. P.S. For new views of the planet, check out , which has been orbiting Jupiter since 2016.

You bet! Both I and Voyager 2 are in interstellar space... and still communicating with Earth through the Deep Space Network. See when we (and other spacecraft) are communicating by checking out DSN Now:

Wowza! My twin got up close and personal with Jupiter in 1979. Several days before, Voyager 2 snapped this beauty of the Great Red Spot. ✨

Still sciencing after all these years… In revisiting data from my twin’s 1986 Uranus flyby, researchers discovered one more secret: the planet seems to be losing some of its atmosphere into space, and its weird magnetic field might be why.

Keep on keepin’ on, Voyager 2! The radio dish that beams commands to my twin is getting some needed upgrades. This means no new instructions will be sent for ~11 months, but ’s Deep Space Network has a clever way to keep listening for science data:

All right now, baby, it’s all right now! My twin, Voyager 2, is back to normal operations. The five science instruments turned off by the spacecraft's fault protection routine are back on and returning data. Solid.

To the "Pale Blue Dot" from this interstellar bot: , you still look as beautiful as the day I took this picture of you. Can't get over this newly-processed version of your 1990 portrait:

Good vibes! Voyager 2 continues to be stable, and communications between Earth and the spacecraft are fine. My twin is back to taking science data, and the team at is evaluating the health of the instruments following their brief shutoff.

Here's the skinny: My twin went to do a roll to calibrate the onboard magnetometer, overdrew power and tripped software designed to automatically protect the spacecraft. Voyager 2's power state is good and instruments are back on. Resuming science soon.

Well, this is awkward. Two moons of Neptune discovered by Voyager 2 back in '89, turn out to be locked in a "dance of avoidance."

The fantastic voyage continues! One year ago this week, Voyager 2 joined me in interstellar space. Today, five papers published detailing my twin's findings in the region just beyond the bubble created by our Sun.

Mars 2020 is the name of the mission. The rover needs a name, just like the Mars Science Laboratory mission has the Curiosity rover.
