Researchers have confirmed two predictions of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity, concluding one of NASAís longest-running projects. The Gravity Probe B experiment used four ultra-precise gyroscopes housed in an Earth-orbiting satellite to measure two aspects of Einstein’s theory about gravity. The first is the geodetic effect, or the warping of space and time around [...]
