    When the Pioneer twins were about 15 AU from the Sun the trajectory anomaly was detected. Has the cause(s) for this anomaly been explained ? Or it it still being investigated ?

    After a superhuman effort, the anomaly has been explained as due to the thermal recoil force (largely from the RTG). See Pioneer anomaly - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, and particularly the full paper by Turyshev et al. (see reference list at end of wiki entry).
