Voyager 1 glitch is due to aliens, claims Uri Geller

The Israeli spoon bender has put an extraterrestrial spin on the Voyager 1 probe's recent technical issues.
Geller, who is certainly no stranger to 'out there' claims, recently commented on the news that NASA's Voyager 1 probe - now the furthest man-made object in history - was experiencing technical problems in the form of readouts from its attitude articulation and control system (AACS) which don't seem to reflect what's happening onboard.

Everything on the spacecraft appears to be working correctly - it is successfully receiving and executing commands and its high-gain antenna is still pointing back towards the Earth.

The telemetry data, however, is gibberish - appearing either randomly generated or reflecting an invalid state for the AACS.

As things stand, Voyager 1 doesn't appear to be in any immediate danger, however NASA will continue to work on the problem in an effort to determine what might be going wrong.
Uri Geller, meanwhile, believes that he knows what's up... aliens.

"The Voyager 1 probe left earth in 1977 and is now 14.5 billion miles away!" he wrote on Twitter.

"But NASA is now receiving what it calls 'impossible data' from it. Their leading theory = a glitch in its articulation and control system... but perhaps it is a controlled signal?"

"If you ask me, yes - Aliens!"

Have any probes been launched with no certain destination in recent years?   I should just Google it, but I guess I'm as bit lazy today.

Space or political?

No, all launched probes have a specific mission, although missions can be extended with new goals set later. It would be nice to see a chase probe built just in case something interesting is spotted in the solar system and a fast launch would be useful.  Like ?Oumuamua.

It's possible that has been " captured " and its under studies?  I wonder what kind of readings it sends, no one is providing specifics as usual. Mmm

Well if Spoonman says so...

You know, I'm just amazed as to how resilient this craft is. Then I'm equally amazed at how power can be continued to be supplied through presumably RTG technologies. Like others have indicated, hats-off to the many engineers involved.

I know! Like, my alarm clock did not go off in 3 days, and I said 'ALIENS!'. It's always aliens!
