Atoms in a Trap Measure Gravity at the Micron Level

I am a firm believer in extra dimensions and the ability to manipulate gravity. this type of experimental evidence is important to the knowledge that will allow us the theories to proceed.

With planned improvements to the apparatus, the researchers will be able to bring the atoms to within a few microns of a test mass and will measure g with an uncertainty of 0.1 parts per million. With these conditions, one can probe theories which say that gravity should depart from the Newtonian norm, perhaps signifying the existence of unknown spatial dimensions.
