About the Authors. Paul S. Wesson is a Cambridge-educated cosmologist who has published more than articles and 9 books. He worked on the Gravity Probe B experiment from until its launch. What is Gravity Probe B? Gravity Probe B (GP-B) is a NASA physics mission to experimentally in­ vestigate Einstein’s general theory of relativity—his theory of gravity. GB-B uses four spherical gyroscopes and a telescope, housed in a satellite orbiting km ( mi) above the Earth, to measure, with unprecedented.   The goal of the space-based Gravity Probe B mission was to measure the drift rate of a gyroscope's spin axis orientation predicted to result from two effects of general relativity (see Everitt et al [] this issue).The purpose of the gyroscope's readout system was to perform the drift rate measurement below milliarcsecond (mas)/yr (1mas = × 10 −9 rad). NASA's Gravity Probe B Confirms Two Einstein Space-Time Theories. Artist concept of Gravity Probe B spacecraft in orbit around the Earth. Image Credit: Stanford. NASA's Gravity Probe B (GP-B) mission has confirmed two key predictions derived from Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which the spacecraft was designed to test. The.

  A NASA review appears to spell the end for Gravity Probe B, the project conceived in the s to measure how the Earth warps the fabric of nearby space-time. The Gravity Probe B (GP-B) mission was launched in to study two aspects of Einstein's theory about gravity: the geodetic effect, or the warping of space and time around a gravitational body. NASA’s Gravity Probe B mission, also known as GP-B, will use four ultra-precise gyroscopes, orbiting the Earth in a unique satellite, to experimentally test two extraordinary predictions of Einstein’s theory that space and time are distorted by the presence of massive objects. Gravity Probe B is the relativity gyroscope experiment being developed by NASA and Stanford University to test two unverified predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. Review of Gravity Probe B assesses the project in the areas of scientific importance, technical feasibility, and competitive value and provides a basis for NASA's decision to continue with the project as.

Review of Gravity Probe B assesses the project in the areas of scientific importance, technical feasibility, and competitive value and provides a basis for NASA's decision to continue with the project as scheduled. The launch of Gravity Probe B is currently targeted for Octo Gravity Probe B Gyroscope charge control using field‐emission cathodes Article (PDF Available) in Journal of vacuum science & technology B 11(2) - April with 38 Reads. As you all know, I rarely report on crazy stuff like free energy, perpetual motion, anti-gravity, etc. I prefer to tell you about real, honest applications that can be utilized at home. But this video of Eric Laithwaite actually doing a demonstration of the anti-gravity effects of a spinning gyroscope, caught my attention. Presented here is a hybrid digital/analog electrostatic suspension control system for the NASA/Stanford University Gravity Probe B Relativity Mission's science gyroscopes.
