Voyager 1 on 2027-12-26T23:59:36,9+0000

I downloaded a new version of NASA’s Eyes from https://eyes.nasa.gov/. The old version was unable to upgrade itself for some reason.

I ran a simulation on Voyager 1 towards the end of its life. At 2027-12-26T23:59:36,9+0000, the spacecraft changed its attitude, pointing the high gain antenna towards outer space. I checked the Wikipedia article, but found no description. Maybe the change in attitude is an artifact of NASA’s Eyes.

Does anyone know what the final act of Voyager 1 will be, save running out of electrical energy?
