Paper Abstract

The last decade of the 20th century has seen the development of extremely sensitive instruments based on new emerging technologies. These instruments, which are widely distributed on Earth and currently being deployed in space, have provided the means necessary to prove more deeply into the nature and evolutionary history of the universe. Together with a noticeable progress in providing a less expensive launch services, this made a significant impact on a number of areas of fundamental research. One of such areas is the research in relativistic and gravitational physics. Motivated by the opportunities offered by the future Space Interferometry Mission, we discuss high-precision astrometric measurements and their significance for the relativistic gravitational theory.
