Thanks guys. So it seems like both Voyagers will still have most of the fields and particles instruments active for the next decade or so.

Yes.
More precisely, with the exception of the Voyager 1 Plasma Science instrument (which is turned off to accommodate UVS observations), all instruments are working well and are capable of continuing operations at least until 2020. However, due to termination of gyro operations about 7 years from now, it will be impossible to calibrate the magnetometer instrument and, more important, spacecrafts could loose orientation anticipating communications blackout with Earth... so, let's cross our fingers!

I had a look at this page today and it seems the last report was made on the 31st of July? Is there a problem with the probes?

They always update these pages in batches with some time delay. No worries.

From the 12/14 Space Daily article (wait - that's tomorrow! hehe)

QUOTE
Scientists suspect the solar wind has been turned sideways by the pressure from the interstellar wind in the region between stars.


Questions for more studied UMSFers: The space daily article has an image that implies our sun's heliosheath has a huge tail. Is that tail due to the sun's motion around the galactic center? Is Voyager 1 at the 'front' edge? Is Voyager 2 heading down the tail side?

Thanks Rogelio - nice article

Ed has quite some CV over the last four decades!!

I sincerely hope he's around to see V1 coast into interstellar space proper.

Some good news from outer space :

"Voyager 1 could cross over into the frontier of interstellar space at any time and much earlier than previously thought"

http://voyager.jpl.nasa.gov/news/recalculating_space.html

Links to the journal Nature :

Hi all,

I'm working on an article on the Voyagers, and have noticed that the last weekly status updates on the Voyager website were published in April. Does anybody know if they're normally sent up in batches?

Thanks
Jeff

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.
