NASA?s Gravity Probe B Confirms Einstein?s Theory

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 experiment, launched in  2004, used four ultra-precise gyroscopes to measure the hypothesized  geodetic effect, the warping of space and time around a gravitational  body, [...]
