Subject: The Pioneer anomaly

 

Date: Monday 7 February 2005

 


 

 

Anderson now wants to help resolve the uncertainty by reanalysing data from the first decade of the Pioneer missions. Slava Turyshev, a colleague of Anderson's at JPL, estimates that it will cost about US$250,000 to fund the analysis, and a grant application will be submitted to NASA later this year.

Dear Dr Anderson and Dr Turyshev,
Please pardon my intrusion here, but the Pioneer anomaly may now be easily explained with the final theory that I have put forward. Journal editors and top academics, though, are very silent on the breakthrough work. (Sadly, it now seems to be for reasons unscientific.) To get a glimpse of the situation and of my work, do kindly click on: UCLA.Letter.

On surfing further, you may find the propounded model of the Sun to be of help in your proposed reanalysis of data. I hope NASA will approve the grant without delay, if it has not done so already.

It is now easily predicted that your study will show the anomalous pro-gravitational, or sunward, force field on Pioneer 10 and 11 (as on the rest of the bodies within the solar system) to emanate from the region of the heliopause. The ramifications will be more than you may have even imagined. In fact, they'll be literally cosmic: In one fell swoop, your investigation will resolve not only the Pioneer anomaly but also the dark matter and black hole problems of cosmology! (Please see The Galaxy.)
Any critique of my model would be gratefully received.
Thank you and best wishes on the enthralling frontier!
Sincerely,
Eugene Sittampalam
