NASA has just received a response from the void, and believers everywhere are losing their collective minds.
After 37 years of inactivity, the NASA spacecraft Voyager 1 fired up its thrusters for the first time in nearly four decades all the way over in interstellar space.
This incredible and unsuspected triumph means Voyager 1 can once again communicate with Earth, from 13 billion miles away.

It JUST received word that Hillary is not President so it figured it would be safe to chat.
Holy crap, you have to be kidding me, I didn’t hear about this and I follow this website all the time....
I think it would take about 20 minutes for the signal to travel that distance.
Wasnt this the plot of a Star Trek movie? Getting messages from a strange entity named, Veeger turned out to be the long lost Voyager satellite?
You a funny guy.

It’s actually getting closer to the earth now as the earth is moving toward it but it will then move away as the earth turns in orbit.....
Sorry. That was meant for Lurkina.n.Learnin.
Yep, I screwed that up. Hours not minutes.

19 hours and 35 minutes according to JPL.
“Eat at Joe’s”
So after all these years, it’s 19 light hours away. A few hours short of a light year.
We want to send people to maybe-inhabitable planets around 28 light years away. They’ll need a few rest stops.
