Update: Voyager Unknown Signal Mystery: Did Voyager Find Aliens?

A while back voyager 2 space probe has started sending signals in unknown data format and some ufologist speculist has proposed that it was caused by aliens. I don’t refute the possibility but engineers at NASA are saying that one flip of a bit in memory of an onboard computers appears to have caused the change in science data pattern returning from voyager 2. A value in a single memory location was changed from 0 to 1. They have successfully corrected the memory on NASA’s voyager 2 spacecraft by resetting a computer bit that had flipped. Reset commands were beamed up to the spacecraft on may, 19 and reset was successful. Though engineers haven’t bothered to specify as to how that change was occured? What were the reasons caused malfunctioning? While voyager 2 was programmed for autonomous fault protection. In a matter of seconds or minutes, they can go into safe mode, a critical capability when communication from Earth takes several hours. Still the big question is here do aliens want to contact us?
