A question out of just curiosity. Pioneer 10's last signal that returned telemetry was from 2002 (https://www.nasa.gov/centers/ames/news/releases/2003/03_25HQ.html). I know that the original science data from the 1970s flybys isn't completely preserved in the PDS (some of it is, not all). But what about from the later communications, through the 90s and up to that last 2002 signal? I thought maybe the data from 1989 and onward be in the PDS?

Again, just curious, I like the Pioneers.

The later stuff isn't really appropriate for any of the PDS nodes since there are no planets out there smile.gif

Thanks! I don't think I would've found that.
