William Fairbank is tremendously lucky-or is he clairvoyant? He initiated the Stanford gyroscope experiment in 1961 as a search for the dragging of inertial frames by the earth's rotation-an effect so small as to be interesting in principle, but not in practice. However, today, twenty years later, just when technology development for the gyroscope experiment has reached completion, the theoretical framework for the experiment is changing. Physicists now see the experiment as a search for the…

A 1% Measurement of the Gravitomagnetic Field of the Earth with Laser-Tracked Satellites

A new measurement of the gravitomagnetic field of the Earth is presented. The measurement has been obtained through the careful evaluation of the Lense-Thirring (LT) precession on the combined orbits

Gravitational wave astronomy: the current status

In the centenary year of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity, this paper reviews the current status of gravitational wave astronomy across a spectrum which stretches from attohertz to kilohertz

General Relativity Measurements in the Field of Earth with Laser-Ranged Satellites: State of the Art and Perspectives

Recent results of the LARASE research program in terms of model improvements and relativistic measurements are presented. In particular, the results regarding the development of new models for the

Elementary derivation of the Lense-Thirring precession

An elementary pedagogical derivation of the Lense-Thirring precession is given based on the use of Hamilton vector. The Hamilton vector is an extra constant of motion of the Kepler/Coulomb problem

Light Dragging, the Origin of Hubble's Constant

Recently E. Harrison has argued the Red Shift distance law proposed by Hubble and velocity-distance law developed later on theoretical grounds has no general proof demonstrating the two laws are
