Question:
I have an old newspaper report about a gravity experiment conducted in Greenland. The report was given at Los Alamos and reportedly indicates a violation of the inverse square law. Is that correct? Do you have any new information?



Replies:
The most recent experiments indicate no deviation from the inverse square law. Physics Abstracts will lead you to the relevant literature. Reference to articles for lay persons may be found in Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature or an appropriate data base.
