All is not lost yet - the spacecrafts resets its antennas every few months to realign them with Earth. The next one is due in October

It might have been pick up by the GGC for recycling. (GGC, the Galactic Garbage Company of Sirius Prime)

I don't remember if we put a return label on it, it may take some time for them to make up a record player for that gold record on it's side.
