Again, gravity is not contingent on electrodynamics.
This paper shows that the anomalous acceleration of the spacecraft Pioneer 10 and 11 in the direction of the Sun is due to the presence of dust in the Kuiper belt, which has been ignored in the calculation. These data provide the first direct measurement of dust density in the Kuiper belt, which is 1.38 x 10-19 gr/cc.

without first reading the sizeable number of responses... so as to keep my guess work pristine for this initial reply..
I would venture to say that the decrease in speed (of two Galactic probes) is attributible to the accellerated expansion of the Cosmos, something that scientists were surpised about...
they generally thought the expansion was constant and never imagined the expansion was gaining speed.
So, the interim hypothesis is that 'dark matter' is the heretofor unknown cause of faster expansion since the big-bang set all things in motion.
Now i can begin reading the rest of the answers, thanks

In my oppinion Space may actually have respiration. Following the hermetic axiom as well as Hindu thought, perhaps we have been observing through the outbreath, and just recently began an inbreath?....food for thought, perhaps all forces do not exhibit simaltaneously, perhaps there is a sequential firing of forces on to grand a scale to percieve.
