Just as a moving electrical charge creates a magnetic field, so a moving mass generates a gravitomagnetic field. According to Einstein's Theory of General Relativity, this effect is virtually negligible.
According to the ESA, this anomaly could be explained by the appearance of a gravitomagnetic field in the spinning superconductor.
Using the distance measurements, Nordtvedt's team calculated the strength of the so-called gravitomagnetic field. Gravitomagnetism is a relativistic addition to the ordinary Newtonian version of gravity, which doesn't take the motions of bodies into account.
Just as a moving electric charge generates a magnetic field in addition to the electric field already present, the Earth's motion ought to generate a completely new kind of field -- a gravitomagnetic field -- different from the ordinary gravitational field surrounding a body.
