      Space Science News for March 2, 2000

      Last month NASA received a weak signal from Pioneer 10, twice as far from
      the Sun as Pluto and speeding toward the constellation Taurus. The hardy
      spacecraft, which is so low on power that it can't transmit and maneuver at
      the same time, is still returning data from the outer solar system. This is
      also a good time of year to see where Pioneer 10 is heading from your own
      back yard. FULL STORY at
