NASA Gravity Probe B (GP-B) experiment proves Einstein was right!

NASA Gravity Probe B (GP-B) has found that there is a space-time vortex around Earth, and its shape matches the predictions of Einstein's theories of relativity.

Time and space in Einstein's theories of relativity, are woven together, forming the fabric of spacetime. As the Earth moves around the Sun the spacetime vortex moves around with it. Even the Earth spinning on its axis creates a spacetime frame-dragging effect.



It could be said the Earth creates its own spacetime geometry relative to its energy or mass.


Physicists are confident that now we have discovered a spacetime vortex existing around the Earth, they must also exist elsewhere in our Universe around neutron stars, black holes and galaxies.


This raise more questions than answers,


It is logical that larger objects will distort the fabric of spacetime more than a relatively small planet like the Earth.


But is there a cut off point to how small an object can be and still distort spacetime or create a vortex around itself?

In Quantum Atom Theory the cut off point is the individual atoms! This might sound odd, but it can be supported by another experiment.


In 1971 the Hafele-Keating experiment took cesium-beam atomic clocks aboard commercial airliners and flew twice around the world first eastward, then westward, and then compared the clocks against clocks that were stationary relative to the ground.


They found that the clock aboard the plane moving eastward, in the direction of the Earth's rotation that had the greatest velocity also had the greatest time dilation. This experiment shows us that even something as small as a commercial airliners can distort the fabric of spacetime forming a so called vortex around itself.



There is no logical reason why this should not be a universal process with the individual observer forming his or her own future spacetime geometry. A process we see and feel as the continuum of time.

Hello from a misty rainy morning in New York City. This tasty posting is quite lovely. I particularly love the last photograph (evocative) and so I offer you a bit of wise and wonderful humor for your entertainment from that Monty Python gang-"The Galaxy Song" http://youtu.be/buqtdpuZxvk
I look forward to you nest post.

Nothing is more profound than a prediction that latter observations can verify. Like Einstein's;"gravitational lensing" or Walter Russell's;"Two opposing vorticies" (Milkyway Bubbles).
