Speed of gravity measured, scripture validated
Ross, H. 2003.  Connections 5(2):4-5. CELD ID 19056

General relativity and the biblical creation model received yet another boost on January 8, 2003, at the 201st meeting of the American Astronomical Society. The boost came from an announcement of the first-ever measurement of the speed of gravity. Einstein's theory says that gravity travels at roughly the same velocity as light. Physicist Sergei Kopeikin and astronomer Ed Fomalont verified (within 20 percent precision) that gravity moves through space at close to light's speed. In other words, it's in the range current big bang models predict.
