Peer Reviewed

Abstract: phases of spaceilight ranging from launch vehicles to lunar and planetary spacecraft. New classeso f sensorss uch as the true free rotor gyro make new concepts in celestialinertial instruments possible. Some unusual potential space applications and experiments, as exemplified by the proposal to verify the theory of General Relativity by a gyro in low earth orbit pose unusual inertial sensor requirements.
