Second. This experiment will not and cannot 'prove The Theory of General Relativity wrong', it only relates to one prediction.
It is extremely interesting that in 100 years of GR, this is the first experiment to find a result different than the prediction. That is an absolutely amazing record in favor of GR.
Physicists will be studying this result very closely and we may not have answers for years. Maybe there is something going on with the experiment that the researchers have missed. Maybe the GR calculations for the Gravitomagnetic effect have been wrong all these years. Maybe it is a new data point altogether that has to be accounted for.
I expect this is going to be a hot topic in Physics for some time to come.
And that is cool!
Even if it is the first experiment to question GR its implicit in the search of truth to examine all anomalies.
Also remember that until recent years we did not have the technology to study these types of fields and effects.

ive thought for years, that alot of einstiens stuff although brilliant, is most likely wrong ...we have to remember his theorys are old and based upon outdates science, scince then their have been many more things discovered, some that obey his rules and some that doesnt..
the problem i have is that scientists use all his theorys to try and come to their own answers, which is pretty closed minded imo .
According to Einstein's theory of general relativity, a moving mass should create another field, called gravitomagnetic field, besides its static gravitational field. This field has now been measured for the first time and to the scientists' astonishment, it proved to be no less than one hundred million trillion times larger than Einstein's General Relativity predicts.
This gravitomagnetic field is similar to the magnetic field produced by a moving electric charge (hence the name "gravitomagnetic" analogous to "electromagnetic").
If MASS and SPEED must be calculated then by which standards do we measure SPEED and how correct can we be about it?

Ah, perhaps. But then again I thought it was common knowledge that there is no such thing as a literal 'vacuum'.
zero point energy
In fact, the sole criteria that distinguishes electromagnetic waves from other things like sound is that it supposedly can travel through a 'vacuum'.
Yet we can clearly see that there is no such vacuum, only a really low density - I would postulate infinitely low(approaching zero).
By the way, great thread. Read til about page 6 or so, might go back to read more.

Either you didn't understand the experiment or I haven't realized what you are trying to say.
You launch 2 rockets aiming at the moon, 1 spins for gyroscopic stability the other one is not. At some point you realize the spinning rocket covered more distance, became faster than the non spinning rocket, irregardless if any of them or both missing the moon. That's what Hoagland claims has happened during the dawn of space age and thus attempts for the moon kept failing and he demonstrated his logic presenting the De Palma experiment where a spinning sphere goes faster and further than a non spinning sphere, while both being launched from same instrument.
