No.  It's actually a very interesting story.  I've followed it off and on for a while; I really do appreciate your posting it.  I wonder how long the craft will survive once it's outside the heliopause and fully exposed to intergalactic cosmic rays.

Guess it will become, wait for it,  d-a-a-r-r-k matter.

This brings up two questions:

1. Since this is the first man-made object to leave the solar system, how do we know what a galactic cosmic ray is, and how does it differ from a normal run-of-the-mill cosmic ray?

2. Will the Klingons shoot this one too?
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

A galactic cosmic ray would be one coming from interstellar space.  They do actually make it past the heliopause and into the solar system's local area; they just don't do it in great quantities.

Aside from that, perhaps we should be uploading the Beastie Boys' "Intergalactic" to the Voyager now?
