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 Mini-Magnetospheric Plasma Propulsion (M2P2)

This site, hosted by the University of Washington's Earth and Space Sciences Program, discusses an advanced plasma propulsion system that will enable spacecraft to attain unprecedented speeds, with minimal energy and mass requirements. The high efficiency attained by the system is due to its utilization of the energy from the solar wind to provide the enhanced thrust.
