View Resource Gravity Probe B: Testing Einstein's Universe

Gravity Probe B is the relativity gyroscope experiment being developed by NASA and Stanford University to test two extraordinary, unverified predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. The experiment will use changes in the direction of spin of four gyroscopes contained in an Earth satellite to measure how space and time are warped by the presence of the Earth, and, more...

View Resource On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies

This is an English translation of the 1905 paper by Albert Einstein on Special Relativity. Updates have been made to the notation. The article appeared in the book The Principle of Relativity. The article showed that the observed independence of the speed of light on the observer's state of motion required fundamental changes to the notion of simultaneity.
