In this paper we propose an interpretation of the time series of the RMS overlap differences of the out-of-plane part N of the orbit of the Martian polar orbiter Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) over a time span ∆P of about 5 years (14 November 1999-14 January 2005) in terms of the general relativistic gravitomagnetic Lense-Thirring effect. It turns out that the average of such a time series over ∆P , normalized to the predicted Lense-Thirring out-of-plane mean shift over the same time span, is μ = 1… CONTINUE READING
