MICROSCOPE satellite test of general relativity: No deviations from the equivalence principle at the 10⁻¹⁴ level

While the best measure of the principle of equivalence had not been exceeded for 10 years, the first results of the CNES MICROSCOPE satellite, equipped with ONERA accelerometers, make it possible today to be 10 times better. They demonstrate, with unparalleled precision, 2.10-14, that bodies fall into emptiness with the same acceleration. The principle of equivalence remains at this unshakable […]
