Spin a superconductor ring at 6,500 RPM and you get a gravity field one hundred million trillion times larger than Einstein’s General Relativity predicts.

For reference, the gravitational field was something like 0.98 millimeters per second squared.

I'm not sure how big the superconductor was though. I wonder how well this scales.

Dunno, but it looks like it'll knock some of the props out from under several theories. First it's discovered the universe is expanding a leetle faster than it ought, now there's this gravity thing.
