Just dug up a small booklet with nice logo of TRW 1979...
TRW : Thompson – Ramo – Wooldridge
American corporation established in 1958 by the merger of Thompson products with Ramo-Wooldridge Corp, renamed TRW Inc in 1965. TRW developed missile systems and the Pioneer 10 and 11 deep space probes. By 2002, Northrop Grumman acquired TRW defense and Goodrich Corporation took over TRW Aerospace group. Nowadays TRW Automotive Holdings Corp is the world’s leader in automotive safety.

About Pioneer, if someone knows about any doc (HR photo, drawing) of the trusters on both side of the dish, please let me know it... (got a new 3D model again for Celestia but cannot end it because of this detail)
Tx!

I would love a pic of the TH 364-4 Star upper stage that is following the pioneer 10 to the stars.

Am I correct in recalling the Pioneers are now too distant for contact, and might, as far as we know, still be functioning ??

As I recall, one of the early Interplanetary Pioneers, maybe #9, was still transmitting some 5 or 7 years ago when they did a "what-the-hell" look at it as part of a Pioneer 10/11 celebration of some sort. I don't know if they've looked since.

From Wikipedia:

Pioneer 6: December 8, 2000 Successful telemetry contact for about two hours.

Pioneer 7: March 31, 1995 Tracked successfully. The spacecraft and one of the science instruments were still functioning.

Pioneer 8: August 22, 1996 The spacecraft commanded to switch to the backup TWT. Downlink signal was re-acquired, one of the science instruments again functioning.

Pioneer 9: 1983 Spacecraft failed.


So only 9 is not functioning, the rest are still active!
