NASA has just praised its Voyager 2 probe in interstellar space for the first time in more than seven months.

Voyager 2 processors sent a set of test commands to the spacecraft on Thursday (October 29) using the Deep Space Station Radio Antenna 43 (DSS43) in Canberra, Australia. Voyager 2 NASA officials confirmed in an update on Monday (Nov.2) that they recorded the instructions and implemented them without incident.
