image for Voyager 1 probe only calls back Earth when it needs more money

Tensions were evident in NASA yesterday when it was revealed that the space probe Voyager 1 had finally contacted back Earth, however it was later discovered that the satellite had called back simply to ask for more money to go out with friends whilst travelling the edge of the Solar system

"Voyager's been like this for a few years recently" said top scientist Raxo Flemondski "at first we're excited to hear from Voyager and we want to talk to them about what planets they've seen, but eventually you realise the only reason Voyager is contacting you is because it's run out of money and needs more transferring to its bank account"

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
