Dear Kathy Kasten,

I have great news. Thanks to you and your fellow Planetary
Society Members the Pioneer Anomaly is solved!

It's been a long and winding road, but Slava Turyshev and his
colleagues have just explained the anomaly causing the
unexpected slowing of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft. It's due
to anisotropic thermal radiation, that is, when the spacecraft
emits more heat in one direction than the other. Their report
has been accepted in the journal Physical Review Letters and is
available online.

Planetary Society Members helped to fund Pioneer data recovery
and analysis when no one else would. Members also made sure we
kept the search alive, with updates on our website and in The
Planetary Report. It was an intriguing mystery, one that had
people talking, asking questions, and eager to learn the answer.
For full details, including a link to Slava and his teamís
published paper, please read my blog entry at

On behalf of Slava, and all of us at The Planetary Society,
thank you!
