Does anybody have a good URL for that?
I've heard it before, but it's so crazy that it seems more like
a good urban legend.
My best guess is that the switch was there so they could run
the experiment to test/verify relativity. I think they ran without
the corrections for a few weeks and got wonderful data.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
