No, he doesn't. That essay is just a pile of misguided and faulty reasoning couched in surprisingly well-written prose. Pi is never 4, even in kinematic But not everything that looks on the surface like a valid mathematical derivation actually is.

Again, no. I didn't bother to read his 'corrections' because there is no need to. Scientists have solved the Pioneer anomaly on their own, as they usually do, and it did not require any changes to orbital equations. The orbital equations of real physics have been shown to be correct within our ability to measure. No 'fudge factors' necessary.
He is a crank. Let his stuff alone and move on. Real math and science are way more interesting.
