Study of the anomalous acceleration of Pioneer 10 and 11
Our previous analyses of radio Doppler and ranging data from distant spacecraft in the solar system indicated that an apparent anomalous acceleration is acting on Pioneer 10 and 11, with a magnitudeExpand
Indication, from Pioneer 10 / 11, Galileo, and Ulysses data, of an apparent anomalous, weak, long range acceleration
Radio metric data from the Pioneer 10/11, Galileo, and Ulysses spacecraft indicate an apparent anomalous, constant, acceleration acting on the spacecraft with a magnitudeExpand
Progress in lunar laser ranging tests of relativistic gravity.
Analyses of laser ranges to the Moon provide increasingly stringent limits on any violation of the equivalence principle (EP); they also enable several very accurate tests of relativistic gravity.Expand
Progress in lunar laser ranging tests of relativistic gravity.
TLDR
Analyses of laser ranges to the Moon provide increasingly stringent limits on any violation of the equivalence principle (EP); they also enable several very accurate tests of relativistic gravity, including the search for a time variation in the gravitational constant. Expand
LUNAR LASER RANGING TESTS OF THE EQUIVALENCE PRINCIPLE WITH THE EARTH AND MOON
A primary objective of the lunar laser ranging (LLR) experiment is to provide precise observations of the lunar orbit that contribute to a wide range of science investigations. In particular, timeExpand
The Pioneer Anomaly
TLDR
A significant amount of information is provided on the design, operations and behavior of the two Pioneers during their entire missions, including descriptions of various data formats and techniques used for their navigation and radio-science data analysis. Expand
The past and present Earth-Moon system: the speed of light stays steady as tides evolve
TLDR
The LLR result is consistent with analyses made with different data spans, different analysis techniques, analysis of optical observations, and independent knowledge of tides, and indicates lower rates of tidal evolution for extended past intervals. Expand
Lunar Laser Ranging Contributions to Relativity and Geodesy
AbstractLunar laser ranging (LLR) is used to conduct high-precision measurements of ranges betweenan observatory on Earth and a laser retro-reflector on the lunar surface. Over the years, LLRExpand
Lunar laser ranging tests of the equivalence principle
The lunar laser ranging (LLR) experiment provides precise observations of the lunar orbit that contribute to a wide range of science investigations. In particular, time series of highly accurateExpand
Support for the thermal origin of the pioneer anomaly.
TLDR
A comprehensive finite-element thermal model of the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecraft is constructed and it is found that the magnitude, temporal behavior, and direction of the resulting thermal acceleration are all similar to the properties of the observed anomaly. Expand
