New Technique to Probe Gravity

TNRTB Archive – Retained for reference information

A team of Italian physicists has developed a new tool that can be used to test how well RTB’s creation model describes gravity. While scientists’ understanding of gravity on large scales (planets, galaxies, etc.) is well established, gravity is not well tested at microscopic scales. However, a sophisticated experiment in which ultracold strontium atoms are trapped and subjected to various forces will permit scientists to measure gravitational forces over distances as small as 0.0000001 meters. The unprecedented precision of the method provides an avenue to subject RTB’s creation model to experimental tests, which comprise the heart of true scientific investigation.
