Voyager 1 is at the edge of the explored universe.
Space is tiny until Dad makes you shuck enough sweet corn to fill a bushel basket.
I was being sarcastic to the first comment. But also, no, it's not at the edge of the explored universe - unless you mean with a physical spacecraft. JWST has explored far further.

This is the energizer bunny of space crafts. It just keeps going and going even when NASA believes they have heard the last from it. Pretty good for a vessel with the computing power that's less than the average electronic car key of today.

Voyager 1 would be an excellent place to measure the orbit diameters of Solar system planets using its distances to and trigonometry with angles from the background stars.

A fine place to differentiate if any discrepancies of distance occur from mass field internal frames of reference (we measure) and its more largely mass field external frame of reference.

Keep that 46 y/o puppy 'right now' relevant,
with informative experiments.

Come on people, let’s do some science.

I loved the Enthusiasm and Excitement in the article. I am intrigued that the Voyager 1 has successfully return back the data instead of the unintelligible data. I think you should more pictures and show how the data was written before and after success.
 
what are we doing for our grandchildren? Keep more robotic missions coming to explore both like JWST, Nancy Roman and other telescopes, as well as more future Voyager like inexhaustible fusion and radioisotope power generators to keep them Going.
Kudos JPL and such future EU and US missions sharing data!
