    So space is quite full, Voyager is barging through more than an atom every cubic inch of space. It’s a wonder we can see anything through all that. The atoms are stripped of one or more electrons so it’s a colloid really.

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.

    What's the frequency, Kenneth?
    It’s steady, persistent, and long-lasting: a low-frequency hum that’s droning away at approximately 3 kHz.
    Gizmodo comes through with oddly hard to find number
    I wonder what Voyager 1 has to pick up such a low frequency? Surely not a radio antenna.

    Voyager is just suffering from old age and like me has a constant ringing in the ears...

    Is it not the low energy particle counter?

    At least it is still running after all these years and transmitting whatever the instruments record.

    Could be. I just haven't seen that in print.

    Apparently both Voyagers carry plasma wave detection instruments:
