They don't build them like they used to

Given the 1960's era technology in the Voyager spacecraft (they are basically modified Mariner spacecraft buses with a specialised payload), it just shows that some people back then really knew how to build something to last. Hats off, and raising a glass to all those on the Voyager programme over the decades.
