In science:

The frame-dragging by the Earth spin has been measured using the LAGEOS satellites with an accuracy of the order of 10 percent [5, 6], might be detected by further Gravity Probe B data analysis and will be measured with improved accuracy by the LARES satellite.
Lunar Laser Ranging, Gravitomagnetism and Frame-Dragging
The Lense-Thirring effect measured by the LAGEOS satellites, that might also be detected by further Gravity Probe B data analysis and by LARES, is due to the rotation of a mass, i.e., by the rotation of the Earth mass.
Lunar Laser Ranging, Gravitomagnetism and Frame-Dragging
Iorio, L., 2002b. A critical approach to the concept of a polar, low-altitude LARES satellite.
An assessment of the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect in the Earth gravity field, in reply to: ``On the measurement of the Lense-Thirring effect using the nodes of the LAGEOS satellites, in reply to ``On the reliability of the so far performed tests for measuring the Lense-Thirring effect with the LAGEOS satellites'' by L. Iorio,'' by I. Ciufolini and E. Pavlis
This is particularly impressive given that LARES is far lower in the Earth’s atmosphere than LAGEOS.
Testing General Relativity and gravitational physics using the LARES satellite
One of the reasons for the smaller residual acceleration of LARES with respect to LAGEOS, in spite of the lower altitude of LARES, is that the various thermal thrust effects should be much smaller on LARES than on LAGEOS.
