A confirmation of the general relativistic prediction of the Lense–Thirring effect
An important early prediction of Einstein's general relativity was the advance of the perihelion of Mercury's orbit, whose measurement provided one of the classical tests of Einstein's theory. TheExpand

On a new method to measure the gravitomagnetic field using two orbiting satellites
SummaryWe describe a new method to obtain the first direct measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect, or dragging of inertial frames, and the first direct detection of the gravitomagnetic field. ThisExpand

Determination of frame-dragging using Earth gravity models from CHAMP and GRACE
Abstract Using the new generation Earth’s gravity field models EIGEN-2S, GGM01S and EIGEN-GRACE02S generated by the space missions CHAMP and GRACE, we have obtained an accurate measurement of theExpand

Towards a One Percent Measurement of Frame Dragging by Spin with Satellite Laser Ranging to LAGEOS, LAGEOS 2 and LARES and GRACE Gravity Models
During the past century Einstein’s theory of General Relativity gave rise to an experimental triumph; however, there are still aspects of this theory to be measured or more accurately tested. TodayExpand

A test of general relativity using the LARES and LAGEOS satellites and a GRACE Earth gravity model
We present a test of general relativity, the measurement of the Earth’s dragging of inertial frames. Our result is obtained using about 3.5 years of laser-ranged observations of the LARES, LAGEOS,Expand
