Although researchers have designed detectors, such as the proposed Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory, without taking the Christodoulou effect into consideration, these devices should nonetheless detect both rapid fluctuations and permanent changes in a gravitational field.
This is the main kind of vortical gravitational fields, because a non-stationary rotation of a space body is very rare (see the "magnetic" kind of fields in the next Section).
A successful imaging of the shadow could help to determine some of these uncertainties, allowing a determination to be made between general relativity and any potential teleparallel theory including a material gravitational field.
Using the Hubble Space Telescope, the astronomers have tested whether the strength of the electromagnetic force is altered in the strong gravitational field of a white dwarf star.
This state of energy changes the interactions between electromagnetic, nuclear, and gravitational fields inside a superconductor, and is responsible for the observational phenomena.
Researchers highlighted recent developments in efforts to find a quantum theory of gravitational fields earlier this year at an American Mathematical Society meeting in Baltimore and at an American Physical Society meeting in Columbus, Ohio.
This method takes advantage of the fact that large weather perturbations in the atmospheres of giant planets modify their gravitational fields in a way that allows researchers to draw conclusions about the nature and extent of those weather phenomena.
