dc.description.abstract This paper discusses experimental design for the Laser Astrometric Test Of Relativity (LATOR) mission. LATOR is designed to reach unprecedented accuracy of 1 part in 108 in measuring the curvature of the solar gravitational field as given by the value of the key Eddington post-Newtonian parameter γ. This mission will demonstrate the accuracy needed to measure effects of the next post- Newtonian order (∝ G2) of light deflection resulting from gravity’s intrinsic non-linearity. en
