Will El Reg report when it hits one 'light day'?

Currently it takes ~20 hours for communication to travel to or from the craft.

How long until it takes 24 hours? aka 1 light day?

Considering that this was built 45 years ago... if we were to build this craft today and launch it... would it also last at least 40-45 years?
