Paper Abstract

The Space-Time Explorer and Quantum Test of the Equivalence Principle mission (STEQUEST) is devoted to a precise measurement of the effect of gravity on time and matter using an atomic clock and an atom interferometer. The mission was selected by ESA as one of four candidates for the M3 mission within the Cosmic Vision Program (launch in 2022).
