Pioneer Anomaly – A Confirmation of Relativity

Authors: Michael J Savins

The Pioneer anomaly is due to time dilation that is caused by the gravity of the Solar System. As pioneer leaves the solar System the rate of flow of time increases causing a doppler blue shift relative to our perspective. This blue shift reduces the expected red shift so the red shift is not as far red shifted as expected. The craft is where it is supposed to be, it just appears to be closer to us than it is.
