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 (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.
