Do objects with extreme gravity fall the same way as normal ones?

Submitter: Anne Archibald
Description: We carried out a test of Einstein's theory of gravity with the millisecond pulsar in a stellar triple system. We showed that the pulsar and its inner white dwarf companion experience accelerations that differ by no more than three parts in a million. This is a summary of the Nature paper. There's also a nice News and Views article by Clifford Will.
