Einstein Proven Correct Yet Again

When Einstein was proven correct about light-shift, humans did it from the earth. This time proof was made in the heavens.
"Imagine the Earth as if it were immersed in honey. As the planet rotates, the honey around it would swirl, and it's the same with space and time," said Francis Everitt, GP-B principal investigator at Stanford University. [He continued] "GP-B confirmed two of the most profound predictions of Einstein's universe, having far-reaching implications across astrophysics research. Likewise, the decades of technological innovation behind the mission will have a lasting legacy on Earth and in space."
Read here about "NASA's Gravity Probe B (GP-B) mission [which] confirmed two key predictions derived from Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which the spacecraft was designed to test."
