Abstract

"Galileo Galilei" (GG) is a small satellite designed to fly in low Eath orbit with the goal of testing the Equivalence Principle - which is at teh basis of the General Theory of Relativity - to 1 part in 10^17. If successfull, it would improve current laboratory results by 4 order of magnitudes. A confirmation would strongly constrain theories; proof of violation is believed to lead a scientific revolution. The experiment design allows it to be carried out at ambient temperature inside a small 1-axis stabilized satellite (250 kg total mass). GG is under investigation at Phase A-2 level by ASI (Agenzia Spaziale Italiana) at Thales Alenia Space in Torino, while a laboratory prototype (known as GGG) is operational at INFN laboratories in Pisa, supported by INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare) and ASI. A final study report will be published in 2009.
