«But to devise an apparatus this sensitive has taken 40 years of effort. To detect such tiny shifts in spacetime, scientists have had to eliminate all other influences. The gyroscopes must be cold, free of gas, free of gravity, undisturbed by electrical and magnetic fields.
So the apparatus must be colder than the space around it, and emptier. The magnetic field inside it must be less than one millionth of the Earth's magnetic field, which means the apparatus must be held inside a lead balloon.
The gyro rotors have to be centred to a few millionths of an inch while spinning at 10,000 revs per minute. The 9ft vacuum chamber must operate at pressures 120 times less than near-Earth space, and the gyroscope spheres must be machined precisely.»
