Based on the +Voyager 2 projected lifetime of about 50 years (although with reduced instrumentation) sounds grand !
Voyager moves around in much less dusty places though.
Yay!  Now to put together proposals that involve doing science at sites really far apart from each other.
This was always going to happen. Amazing news though!
