The restoration of the quadrupole light bending: the Gaia Relativistic EXperiment (GAREX-II)
INAF-OATo, Strada Osservatorio 20, Pino Torinese, Torino, Italy
The ESA astrometric mission Gaia (launch in late 2011) will be able to put to test General Relativity (GR) also thanks to a differential experiment, GAREX, implemented in the form of repeated Eddington-like measurement, aiming at measuring, for the first time, the quadrupole light bending due to an oblate planet.
