    NASA scientists just recently launched their 700 million dollar satelite, which they have been working on for 40 years. The satelite is designed to test many of Einstien's theories and predictions.

    Pretty interesting stuff!

    I think it's great too, "warping time" you gotta love it!

    Yep, it's a powerful laser to see into the future.

    Think they'd actually tell us what their findings really were, probally not but its about time they did something that can really make some noise in the scientific community. I for one will try to follow this closly, I love this stuff!

    Will it spin against the earth's rotation really fast and make time go backwards? [​IMG] maybe its already happened but we dont know about it...

    Oh wait, thats SUPERMAN, not Einstein...

    Actually, the interesting thing is, it boils down to an extraordinarily precise inertial navigation box, INS was used before GPS days for navigation, some of them use lasers instead of gyros, but same principle

    A buddy of mine worked on it for a few years, boy was that thing hosed up.....and I've seen some really hosed up projects.
    Considering the money, hope it works...
