Tests and Anomalies of Post-Newtonian Gravitational Theories

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Usually, the "laboratory" of gravitational tests was the celestial bodies, the astrophysical systems. But such tests are disturbed by non-gravitational effects. The most used such "laboratory" was the solar system. Recently, scientists have focused on observing binary pulsars for the verification of gravitational theories, by observing the variations of the orbital period, thus providing indirect evidence for the emission of gravitational radiation. But the experimenter cannot "arrange the lab" according to his needs, nor trigger certain events when he needs them. But the current technological development is beginning to allow pure laboratory experiments. DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.21684.60801
