The project’s technological breakthroughs culminated in the launch of the GP-B spacecraft in 2004 with the sole purpose of confirming two of Einstein’s predictions.
Considering it has taken this long to prove Einstein’s theories, it is a little bewildering to imaging how he came up with his theories to begin with. I have to say that my favorite Einstein theory is around the notion that time is relative meaning that for someone who is in a spacecraft traveling close to the speed of light they may only experience time passing in a matter of hours or minutes while someone else back on Earth would be experiencing time as days or years.
Einstein was a Genius or Insane? - Fine line between genies and insanity... because he was different and brilliant and didn't think like everyone else does. Or Because he was holding the Truth ?
