Ummmm... my far from the mainframe point o view interpeets that as "that sucker is still going, and will keep going... too bad we didna rig some nifty cameras up on it)

Launch a high speed digicam to outer space..... we may not like it now, but 20-30 years from now that sucker will give us views not known. The thing canna weigh more than a few kilograms after hardening.....fuel costs plus its weight, and just send it to outer space to be a "virtual" tourist for the rest of us.

5: in the same pile [RED books] so here goes
6: the ability to expand polynomials (a+b) (c+2d)
7:yields, ac + 2ad + bc = 2bd

Is that equal sign a typo?

from Larry Lasher, Pioneer Project Manager
Pioneer 10 had another successful track on 7/9/01 - exactly one year after the last pointing maneuver. The original results back on 7/9/00 - weak signal - seemed to indicate that the maneuver may have failed. The signal strengths from the latest tracks, however, indicate that last year's weak signal was probably due to the onboard one-way oscillator. Therefore, we conclude that the maneuver did work, and another pointing maneuver will not be necessary until first quarter 2002.

from SETI

The RTGs are currently providing approximately 65 Watts of power (about
42% of the 155 Watts launch value).


The science and transmitter are turned off to provide enough power to
fire the attitude control engines for the biannual spacecraft pointing
maneuvers towards the Sun (the latest maneuver was executed on 2/11-
12/00). The battery voltage is often discharged and charged. However,
the battery does not support any of the load, being charged to only
about 1 volt at its peak, down from its nominal value of 9 volts.


The Bus Voltage is at a steady 27 Volts with a Bus Current of about
1.3 Amps.


The platform temperature is still within acceptable limits at -41
degrees F (the nominal range is between -63 F to 180 F).


The Deep Space Network (DSN) continues to provide good data with the
received signal strength of -178 dBm (only a few dBm from the receiver
threshold of -180 dBm).


Although powerwise Pioneer 10 is operating OK with one science instrument
on, the DSN may not be able to get good telemetry lock as the signal-to-
noise ratio (SNR) continues to decrease. Even though in a year the DSN
may still be able to get good telemetry lock, being this close to the
receiver threshold and losing about 0.3 dBm/yr due to range, maintaining
contact will be a challenge.


Hope this helps.
