Towards a new test of general relativity?


Recommended Posts

Scientists funded by the European Space Agency have measured the gravitational equivalent of a magnetic field for the first time in a laboratory. Under certain special conditions the effect is much larger than expected from general relativity and could help physicists to make a significant step towards the long-sought-after quantum theory of gravity.

This is one of those areas where the words all make sense, but I have trouble figuring out the sentences. I'm not sure what the implications are, to be honest, but I'm glad the boffins are excited about it. Will they use it to make better television pictures? :lol:
