So as not to keep you in suspense: after years of painstaking efforts in recovery, editing, modeling and analysis of the extended set of Pioneer data, a new picture of the anomaly has emerged. We have now shown for the first time that the anomaly has a temporally-decaying (not constant as previously thought) nature and points towards Earth. This strengthens the case for on-board generated recoil forces as the reason behind the anomaly. Thanks to the data you helped us recover, we were able to look at many more years of Pioneer data that allowed us to more accurately characterize the anomaly. Because we owe so much to the Members of the Planetary Society, I wanted to tell you personally about the details of this crucial milestone in understanding the Pioneer Anomaly. At the Planetary Society's website you can read the latest project update along with the journal article. We are continuing our modeling and analyses of the cause of the Pioneer Anomaly and will be publishing an additional paper in a few months. I hope that, like me, you will take pride in and feel joy about your invaluable role in helping us to reach a major milestone in the study of the Pioneer Anomaly. Again, thank you. Sincerely, Slava Turyshev Principal Investigator on the study of the Pioneer Anomaly ----- KK Listen to 'Strange Days...
