Dear Kathy Kasten,

<snip>

With my colleagues, Viktor Toth, Jordan Ellis, and Craig
Markwardt, I am publishing new findings in the scientific
journal Physical Review Letters.

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
