The Voyager 1 space probe is now 13 billion miles from Earth, on the edge of the Heliosphere, if not beyond it and into interstellar space.
Nasa ground controllers sent commands to the probe to fire up its back-up thrusters that have been dormant for 37 years, since Voyager 1 cruised by Saturn. To the controllers' delight, last week the four thrusters came alive.
