Objectives and Applications The objective of the prototype experiment involved microgravity on a sounding rocket flight for a duration of 6 minutes. With respect to LPI (Local Position Invariance), a cornerstone of general relativity, the apparent experimental limitations are caused by the reference clock, the selected Rb transition monitored using frequency modulation spectroscopy, and the limited variation in the gravitational potential during this flight.
