Submission + - Both Voyager Spacecraft using Backup Thrusters (space-travel.com)

wooferhound writes: "Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are each equipped with six sets, or pairs, of thrusters to control the pitch, yaw and roll motions of the spacecraft.
These include three pairs of primary thrusters and three backup, or redundant, pairs. Both spacecraft are now using all three sets of their backup thrusters."
