Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Space exploration's disappointments sometimes yield more dramatic stories than other endeavors' great successes. Case in point: the mystery of Pioneer 10's stubborn refusal to adhere to its projected trajectory. Launched in 1972 and now quietly hurtling well beyond Neptune's orbit, Pioneer 10 drifted hundreds of thousands of miles off course. But why? Could some as yet undiscovered fundamental force have finally tipped its hand? As with most hopes and dreams, the promise of groundbreaking scientific discovery isn't easy to let go, and among The Pioneer Detectives, one scientist's refusal to relinquish his belief that the spacecraft's errant path provided the smoking gun for a new physics proves particularly powerful and sad. Another's long and careful journey to the core of the mystery illustrates both the brilliant self-correcting venture of science itself and--more to the point--journalist Konstantin Kakaes's understanding that science stories are, at their base and at their best, human stories. --Jason Kirk
