- n. The property of a spinning mass that twists spacetime
For example, my first point about gravitomagnetism was not based on the specific applicability to high speeds of the low-speed equations as was imagined, but rather on the symmetry requirement that the effects - whatever they were - of mass flowing one way should be canceled out by the same mass flow in the other direction.
Small acceleration sensors placed at different locations close to the spinning superconductor, which has to be accelerated for the effect to be noticeable, recorded an acceleration field outside the superconductor that appears to be produced by gravitomagnetism.
If you actually had an interest in gravitomagnetism, why is it that you hadn’t even read the warning at the start of the Wikipedia article you cited on the subject that stated that this model only applied to slow-moving particles?
