Einstein was Right Again

Love it!

Put a spinning gyroscope into orbit around the Earth, with the spin axis pointed toward some distant star as a fixed reference point. Free from external forces, the gyroscope's axis should continue pointing at the star--forever. But if space is twisted, the direction of the gyroscope's axis should drift over time. By noting this change in direction relative to the star, the twists of space-time could be measured.

Science is cool. 😉

One Response to "Einstein was Right Again"

  1. Einstein was right in many ways in his many theories and there are lots of his theories that are used to day. He was seen as a mad man in his time for having a different point of view and beliefs but today he is a legend of all time.
