Gravity Probe B

Post by ColSixPack » Mon Jun 04, 2012 10:07 am

I know it's old news (May 2011), but have you guys discussed this project before. My brother showed it to me. He teaches this in his AP Physics class. Pretty cool, but the film is a little hard to get through unless you love technology and measurements.http://einstein.stanford.edu/

Which video are you talking about?

Do you mean the 6 animations comparing Newton to Eisenstein?
Thought for the day:
We are always hearing about how Social Security is going to run out of money.
How come we never hear about Welfare running out of money?

Glad I can help Paulie. Just don't forget the door swings both ways.
Your reaction is always worth the correction....besides...using a wrong name is confusing.

Sorry, it was a video he showed me. I assumed it was on the website. I just looked through the data.
