12542916 story NASA Finds Cause of Voyager 2 Glitch 283 Posted by kdawson on Wednesday May 19, 2010 @12:42AM from the blame-cosmic-rays dept. astroengine writes "Earlier this month, engineers suspended Voyager 2's science measurements because of an unexpected problem in its communications stream. A glitch in the flight data system, which formats information for radioing to Earth, was believed to be the problem. Now NASA has found the cause of the issue: it was a single memory bit that had erroneously flipped from a 0 to a 1. The cause of the error is yet to be understood, but NASA plans to reset Voyager's memory tomorrow, clearing the error."
