Pioneer Anomaly Solved By 1970s Computer Graphics Technique

A new computer model of the way heat is emitted by various parts
of the Pioneer spacecraft, and reflected off others, finally
solves one of the biggest mysteries in astrophysics.

During the last decade or so, the Pioneer Anomaly has become one
of the great unsolved puzzles in astrophysics.

The problem is this. The Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft were
launched towards Jupiter and Saturn in the early 1970s. After
their respective flybys, they continued on escape trajectories
out of the Solar System, both decelerating under the force of
the Sun's gravity. But careful measuremenrs show that the
spacecraft are slowing faster than they ought to, as if being
pulled by an extra unseen force towards the Sun.
