Are Flyby Anomalies an ASTG Phenomenon

  title={Are Flyby Anomalies an ASTG Phenomenon},
  author={G. G. Nyambuya},
  journal={arXiv: General Physics},
This reading expounds with expediency on the recently proposed Azimuthally Symmetric Theory of Gravitation (ASTG) set-up earlier. At its inspection, it was demonstrated that the ASTG is capable (among others solar anomalies) of explaining the precession of the perihelion of solar planets. In the present, we show that the ASTG is capable of explaining the puzzling observations of flyby anomalies, i.e. the anomalous asymptotic speed increases of the osculating hyperbolic speed excess. It is shown… Expand
A flyby anomaly for Juno? Not from standard physics
Abstract An empirical formula recently appeared in the literature to explain the observed anomalies of about Δ ρ ≈ 1 - 10  mm s−1 in the geocentric range-rates ρ of the Galileo, NEAR and RosettaExpand
A possible flyby anomaly for Juno at Jupiter
Abstract In the last decades there have been an increasing interest in improving the accuracy of spacecraft navigation and trajectory data. In the course of this plan some anomalies have been foundExpand
Bipolar outflows as a repulsive gravitational phenomenon — Azimuthally Symmetric Theory of Gravitation (II)
This paper is part of a series on the Azimuthally Symmetric Theory of Gravitation (ASTG). This theory is built on Laplace-Poisson's well known equation and it has been shown that the ASTG is capableExpand
Anomalous accelerations in spacecraft flybys of the Earth
The flyby anomaly is a persistent riddle in astrodynamics. Orbital analysis in several flybys of the Earth since the Galileo spacecraft flyby of the Earth in 1990 have shown that the asymptoticExpand
On the effect of ocean tides and tesseral harmonics on spacecraft flybys of the Earth
The so-called flyby anomaly has encouraged several authors to analyze in detail the minor perturbative contributions to the trajectory of spacecraft performing a flyby manoeuvre. This anomaly consistExpand
Kinematics effects of atmospheric friction in spacecraft flybys
Abstract Gravity assist manoeuvres are one of the most successful techniques in astrodynamics. In these trajectories the spacecraft comes very close to the surface of the Earth, or other Solar systemExpand
Radiometric data from the Pioneer 10 and 11 spacecrafts have revealed an unexplained constant acceleration of aA = (8.74 ± 1.33) × 10 10 ms 2 towards the Sun, also known as the Pioneer anomaly.Expand
The Pioneer Anomaly
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
Observational evidence for travelling wave modes bearing distance proportional shifts
Discrepancies of range between the Space Surveillance Network radars and the Deep Space Network in tracking the 1998 Earth flyby of NEAR, and between ESA's Doppler and range data in Rosetta's 2009Expand


Modelling the flyby anomalies using a modification of inertia
The flyby anomalies are unexplained velocity jumps of 3.9, −4.6, 13.5, −2, 1.8 and 0.02 mm s −1 observed near closest approach during the Earth flybys of six spacecraft. These flybys are modelledExpand
The energy transfer process in planetary flybys
Abstract We illustrate the energy transfer during planetary flybys as a function of time using a number of flight mission examples. The energy transfer process is rather more complicated than aExpand
Finding the origin of the Pioneer anomaly
Analysis of radio-metric tracking data from the Pioneer 10/11 spacecraft at distances between 20 and 70 astronomical units (AU) from the Sun has consistently indicated the presence of an anomalous,Expand
Lessons learned from the Pioneers 10/11 for a mission to test the Pioneer anomaly
Abstract Analysis of the radio-metric tracking data from the Pioneer 10/11 spacecraft at distances between 20 and 70 astronomical units (AU) from the Sun has consistently indicated the presence of anExpand
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
We continue our exploration of whether the flyby anomalies can be explained by scattering of spacecraft nucleons from dark matter gravitationally bound to the earth. We formulate and analyze a simpleExpand
The physics of star formation
Our current understanding of the physical processes of star formation is reviewed, with emphasis on processes occurring in molecular clouds like those observed nearby. The dense cores of these cloudsExpand
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
