      Which leaves open staggering possibilities that would force wholesale reprinting of all physics books:

      • Invisible dark matter is tugging at the probes
      • Other dimensions create small forces we don’t understand
      • Gravity works differently than we think

      Data from the Galileo and Ulysses spacecraft suggest the anomaly may have affected them, too. But neither has been far enough from the Sun — the dominant source of gravity in the solar system — to firmly distinguish any possible discrepancy from noise in the data, Turyshev says. Galileo was crashed into Jupiter last year, and Ulysses will never go farther than it has.
