Radio Ranging Techniques to test Relativistic Gravitation

Cowsik, R.;
Open Access English
  • Published: 08 Nov 1999
It is suggested that modern techniques of radio ranging when applied to study the motion of the Moon, can improve the accuracy of tests of relativistic gravitation obtained with currently operating laser ranging techniques. Other auxillary information relevant to the Solar system would also emerge from such a study.
