Pioneer Anomaly 'Humbles and Perplexes' NASA

NASA and other scientists are "perplexed" by what strange forces at-work on spacecraft.

Through studies conducted the flight of six satellites, independent researchers confirmed an unknown force acting on five. The sixth did not offer any useful data, as its flight path was too short. Apparently, all of the spacecraft showed inexplicable changes in their motion when they flew close to the Earth.

While officials believe the anomalies recorded in all of the flight patterns are somehow related, they do not know how. However, the anomalous findings may mean that the very Law of Gravity itself needs to be changed!

Further research is being conducted and the findings are to be released in an upcoming issue of Physical Review Letters.
