    They have just measured a better value for G, the granviational constant.

    Announcement of New Value

    "After combining all of the measurements we get a value of G = 6.673 87(0.000 27)×10^–11 m^3 kg^–1 s^–2. This new value is 5 parts in 10^5 smaller than our previous published values. "

    Thanks SelfAdjoint.
    Further constraining differences in G due to nucleon type (etc). :smile:
