Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity confirmed by Microscope
On December 4th, 2017 the first results analysed from the Microscope satellite confirmed the equivalence principle with a precision of 2.10-14, which is already 10 times better than the best experiments conducted so far. The goal of the mission is to reach a precision of 2.-15. Up to now, bodies still fall with the same acceleration in a vacuum and Microscope first results reconfirm Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity, as formulated a century ago.
You will find below the press release, links to the ARXIV publications and for further explanations on the equivalence principle, you can read, or re-read, our posts:
