Pioneer 10 Anomaly Calling Into Question Einstein's Second Postulate

Authors: Fabien Sabinet

Based on the anomalous acceleration acting on Pioneer 10 with a magnitude of 8.7×10-10 m/s² directed towards the Sun, we can demonstrate that there is serious indication that the anomaly is due to the use of a wrong Doppler shift formula by the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Indeed if we compare the result given by the formula used by JPL based on the Einstein's second postulate, and the result given by the classic Galilean velocity addition formula, we found exactly the value of the anomalous acceleration acting on Pioneer 10 toward the Sun.
