Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are space probes launched by NASA in 1977. They communicate with Earth through the Deep Space Network (DSN) using interplanetary data protocol despite the great distance. The data they send may sometimes be received as "broken" or corrupted due to various reasons, such as noise or interference in space. When receiving data, errors can be identified using various error-detection techniques like checksums, and the correct data can be requested again or reconstructed. I'll give you an example of how "broken" data can look like and how to check for errors using a simple xor-based checksum in Python: ```python # Original data and broken data original_data = "Voyager data: 12345" broken_data = "Voyagep data: 12345" # Simple XOR-based checksum function def xor_checksum(data): checksum = 0 for char in data: checksum ^= ord(char) return checksum # Calculate checksums for both original and broken data original_checksum = xor_checksum(original_data) broken_checksum = xor_checksum(broken_data) # Compare the checksums if original_checksum == broken_checksum: print("No errors found in the data") else: print("Data is broken, request for the correct data again") # Output: Data is broken, request for the correct data again ``` In this example, we have an original data string and a broken data string. We defined a simple xor-based checksum function that calculates a checksum for each data string. Then we compared their checksums. Since they don't match, it indicates that the data is broken, and we request the correct data again. Note that this is a very simple example; real-world data communication systems use more advanced error detection and correction techniques.
