Heim and this GR article

  1. Mar 23, 2006 #1
    Over in https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=115295 on the forum they are talking about this research being hailed as a test for GR....BUT...could someone tell me if the "gravitomagnetic" field in http://www.physorg.com/news12054.html was what Heim was talking about.

    I think it's time to take a serious new look at this guy and his stuff. Fool me once(no one takes a look at alleged mass of particles derived from first principles in Heim's theory) shame on me, fool me twice(the reason the theory was hyped recently was it's Gravitomagnetic fields from spinning conductors) shame on us, big time.

    Someone who is better than me should investigate and report please

    EDIT: I'm no physicist so I can't really say one thing or another on this besides what I think. Hopefully someone can say something at least about this experiment at all. It sounds like a reproduction of an earlier experiment by a Russian scientist that was jeered quite heavily. Anyone?

    I had read in one article about it that GR does not predict the right force... so I do not see how it does support GR over Heim (someone mentioned to me that Heim does in fact predict the right force)
