**Subject:** 111(2) : Derivation of the Lense Thirring Effect from the Cartan Torsion

The correct order of the rotational frame dragging observed by Garvity Probe B is obtained by rotating the so called Schwarzschild solution to produce the infinitesimal generator of the Cartan torsion. There are major self inconsistencies in the standard model claim that the Einstein Hilbert field equation explains the very precise experimental results of Gravity Probe B or Cassini and the standard model cannot explain the Pioneer / Cassini anomalies at at all. ECE gives a starightforward explanation as in papers 93 to present. In the standard model theory of rotational frame dragging (a term coined by Einstein) there are several major self-inconsistencies on several levels. In ECE theory they are remedied by inclusion of the Cartan torsion. Any line element can be rotated to produce the Cartan torsion, and so this is a new general method applicable to any line element (be it a solution of EH or not). The method produces any precessional effect straightforwardly (e.g. Thomas precession in paper 110). A rigorously self consistent solution to any relativistic problem must be based on the Bianchi identity and its Hodge dual, which give four vector equations linking well defined elements of torsion and curvature (see various summaries in review paper 100). The structure of these equations is the rigorously correct and self-consistent version of the so called “gravitomagnetic equations” of the standard model. Therefore the very obscure term “rotational frame dragging” means the relativistic corrections of the Coriolis and centripetal accelerations. These are obviously due to rotation, and so generate torsion directly. The EH treatment uses a zero torsion from the Christoffel connection, so is from the beginning not able to account self-consistently for rotational frame dragging.

I don’t think that the standard modellers are able any longer to sweep such obvious failings under the carpet. The situation now is that satellites provide very precise data, but these data cannot be explained by EH, they can be explained however by ECE.
