I missed this one from the Planetary Society:

Pioneer Anomaly Solved

So Pioneers 10 and 11 were just slowing down due to the asymmetric way they released heat. Not as exciting as new physics, but good to know.

Wow, cool! And proof that perseverance really pays and that by meticulously collecting (and recollecting) data and analyzing a problem, you can tackle even old headscratchers that had people puzzled for decades.

Did you see their project where they were raising $34K to buy enough telescope time to determine if Alpha Centauri has an earth-massed planet (by the doppler method)?
