Pioneer anomaly, planetary orbits.
Observed locations of pioneer 10 and 11 spacecrafts, after they left solar system, are displaced from their predicted positions in space and the discrepancy, which could not be explained by current physical laws, is termed as ‘pioneer anomaly’. This article attempts to show that noticed discrepancy is an apparent phenomenon, produced by faulty geometry used in contemporary laws of planetary motion. In reality, spacecrafts and external efforts on them behave normally. There is no cause for assumption of strange ‘forces’ or mysterious effects on these spacecrafts.
