Inter-Satellite laser interferometry

Wuchenich, Danielle M. R.

Description

Subtle gravitational e ects can be measured by precisely monitoring the position of a test mass. Often this is done by measuring the displacement between two or more test objects. The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites do just this, by continuously tracking changes in their separation with micron-level sensitivity. These displacement measurements are used to infer the gravitational potential of the Earth, which has enabled scientists to monitor key aspects of our...[Show more]
