Effect of the earth's revolution around the sun on the proposed gyroscope test of the lense-thirring effect
We analyze the proposed Stanford experiment (precession of the spin of a gyroscope in an Earth satellite) to test the Lense-Thirring effect. We show that the sun also makes a contribution to the precession which must be included, particularly if one wishes to distinguish between the Einstein and Brans-Dicke theories. © 1970 The American Physical Society.
