The idea of and how they accomplished this leaves me just amazed. I don't really get excited about things on the Discovery or SCI channel anymore as it's all the same thing over and over. But this is just awesome and refreshing. I'm glad that not all of our research money is going to Viagra and hair restoration. (queue idocracy quotes)

Wow, just wow. It's amazing that they can get a result like that, so many awesome things in physics

This experiment, while measuring the curvature of space, has little to do with what you're talking about. The beauty of it is in the fact that it is the first to show that a moving, spinning body will drag and distort spacetime differently to a simple stationary mass

More on the technology behind the mission.

You know what's fun. Moths. You take a moth and put on the planet for thousands and thousands of years. It eventually learns to use light from fixed stars to navigate with. Then you invent lightbulbs and the moth thinks they are a fixed star a long ways off. They fly around and around it and die on your front porch.

Long long standing things. Things that you thnk are permanent and reliable are just there give people something to sweep off the porch.

Curvature of light was theorized back in the 18th century by Isaac Newton, but not practically observed until 1919:

I hate to be the voice of pessimism here, but I wonder sometimes if these results are born from a technology that's designed to "find" the assumed results. I'm not arguing against the theories of Einstein, or against these results even. Just can't help wondering how they go about developing tech to find objective results sometimes.

Amazing stuff. I mean we knew that objects in space did distort space time and I hope that through this we now know how much Earth distorts this field. That would be an interesting figure to know how much x amount of mass distorts the field.

This leads to so many more questions and moves us one step closer to true space travel.


Ponder this if space time can be distorted what is on the other side of the fabric as it were? I think it is a living room and we are all just fish. That is what I want to see.

They knew what needed to be done in order to get the measurements. They simply needed to technology to make it happen. Like creating a sphere of quartz that is perfectly spherical to the accuracy of the thickness of 40 atoms.
