A confirmation of the general relativistic prediction of the Lense–Thirring effect
TLDR
A measurement of the Lense–Thirring effect on two Earth satellites is reported: it is 99 ± 5 per cent of the value predicted by general relativity; the uncertainty of this measurement includes all known random and systematic errors, but the total ± 10 per cent uncertainty is allowed to include underestimated and unknown sources of error.
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. This
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. Today
Test of Lense - Thirring orbital shift due to spin
The Lense - Thirring effect is a very small shift of the orbit of a test particle due to the spin of a body. It may be described as an orbital drag due to the gravitomagnetic field generated by the
LARES/WEBER-SAT, frame-dragging and fundamental physics
After a brief introduction on the scientific objectives of the LARES/WEBER-SAT satellite we present the recent measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect using the nodes of the LAGEOS and LAGEOS 2
Mathematical prediction of the time evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy by a Gauss error function and Monte Carlo simulations
In this paper are presented mathematical predictions on the evolution in time of the number of positive cases in Italy of the COVID-19 pandemic based on official data and on the use of a function of
A COMPREHENSIVE INTRODUCTION TO THE LAGEOS GRAVITOMAGNETIC EXPERIMENT: FROM THE IMPORTANCE OF THE GRAVITOMAGNETIC FIELD IN PHYSICS TO PRELIMINARY ERROR ANALYSIS AND ERROR BUDGET
The existence of the gravitomagnetic field. generated by mass currents according to Einstein geometrodynamics, has never been proved. The author of this paper, after a discussion of the importance of
