Science is WAY cool – and this is worth passing on:
NASA Announces Results of Epic Space-Time ExperimentMay 4, 2011:
Einstein was right again.
There is a space-time vortex around Earth, and its shape precisely matches the predictions of Einsteins theory of gravity.
Researchers confirmed these points at a press conference today at NASA headquarters where they announced the long-awaited results of Gravity Probe B GP-B.
“The space-time around Earth appears to be distorted just as general relativity predicts,” says Stanford University physicist Francis Everitt, principal investigator of the Gravity Probe B mission.
