Space Science, slow but steady

by on May.17, 2011, under Articles, Science

So we made some science history the other day. We have proof of two of Einstein’s theories. Albert Einstein came up with a lot of scientific theories and formula but a fair amount of them could never be tested. Why? Because they required testing in outer space and Einstein never managed to live to see human space flight.

Fifty six years later, we’ve confirmed two theories:

  • Geodetic effect which is the warping of space and time around a gravitational body.
  • Frame-dragging which is the amount a spinning object pulls space and time with it as it rotates.

It was confirmed by NASA’s Gravity Probe B mission which was launched in 2004 and completed its mission in 2010.

This is actually a good example of how space based science works. It is sadly not a quick science.
