OT: Pioneer anomaly


The so-called Pioneer anomaly appears to have been solved, according to the Planetary Society blog by Emily Lakdawalla.

To my surprise, an esteemed forum member co-authored the scientific paper supporting the thermal origin of this phenomenon (the more than expected slowing down of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spaceprobes).


I think it's a pretty impressive feat to have gathered all that data and processed it. On a lighter note i couldn't find a sentence that began with "So".

So what? :)


You can find the latest scientific paper, being published in Physical Review Letters, here: "Support for the thermal origin of the Pioneer anomaly" by Slava G. Turyshev, Viktor T. Toth, Gary Kinsella, Siu-Chun Lee, Shing M. Lok, and Jordan Ellis.

There is an interesting name in this list. :-)


As the OP mentioned already :->
