ABSTRACT

The author will show that neither the Schwarzschild metric nor the metric introduced in 1916 by Schwarzschild describes the data produced by the time delay experiment by Shapiro et al. The author will describe the physical metric that will explain the time delay experiment data correctly as a solution to Einstein Equation of General Relativity. Other tests of General Relativity, the bending of light, the advancement of perihelia, gravitational red shift and gravitational lensing are satisfied by both the Schwarzschild metric and author’s physical metric.
