NASA Brings Voyager 2 Fully Back Online, 11.5 Billion Miles From Earth

In a statement, NASA confirmed that Voyager 2 is back in business. 

"Mission operators report that Voyager 2 continues to be stable and that communications between the Earth and the spacecraft are good."

"The spacecraft has resumed taking science data, and the science teams are now evaluating the health of the instruments," the agency said.

The fix is no mean feat: It takes 17 hours one-way to communicate with Voyager 2 from Earth, which is the furthest away manmade object in space. That means a single information relay takes 34 hours.

Hopefully @Johnny Go saw this, I recall space is one of his interests. I've become more interested in it over the years myself, so this is pretty awesome news.
