Einstein Wins Again: Space Satellite Confirms Weak Equivalence Principle

Einstein Wins Again: Space Satellite Confirms Weak Equivalence Principle

Enlarge / There is a long tradition of experimental testing of the weak equivalence principle, the basis of Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. GOOD One of the most counter-intuitive notions in physics is that all objects fall at the same rate, regardless of their mass, i.e. the principle of equivalence. This was memorably illustrated …
