>>>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 team=82s
>>>published paper, please read my blog entry at

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

Hi, Kathy,

I meant my response light-heartedly and meant no disrespect
whatever, and if that wasn't clear, I'm sorry.

It simply struck me as amusing that matters vital in one context
to people concerned with it are meaningless or incomprehensible
to other people with other focuses and interests. The item in
question had no meaning for me, which of course doesn't mean it
won't have meaning for others or that it is unimportant.
