Dear UM Team,

Your admission that your experiment was faulty restores some of my faith in you.

However, you say, “Carter is correct regarding his mention of satellite calculations being based on an entirely different formula.” This is sort of a dodge, don’t you think? As I mentioned, the universal gravitational constant and the Gaussian gravitational constant are mathematically linked in a very simple way, so it’s not really an ENTIRELY different formula, is it? In fact, Stuart was correct to say that our predicted orbits for satellites would be way off if the universal constant was off. This is a MAJOR problem for the UM. Seriously.
