NASA’S Gravity Probe B Mission Completes Data Collection

Almost 90 years after Albert Einstein first postulated his general theory of relativity, scientists have finished collecting data to put it to a new, different kind of experimental test. NASA’s Gravity Probe B satellite has been orbiting the Earth for more than 17 months. It used four ultra-precise gyroscopes to generate the data required for this unprecedented test. Fifty weeks worth of data has been downloaded from the spacecraft and…

NASA Gravity Probe B Mission Enters Science Phase, Ready to Test Einstein’s Theory

Gravity Probe B, a NASA spacecraft to test two predictions of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity has achieved a major milestone with the completion of the first phase of its mission and the transition into the science phase. The GP-B mission is now one step closer to shedding new light on the fundamental properties of our universe. Gravity Probe B (GP-B), a NASA spacecraft to test two predictions of…
