Good point Z - will have to put in the numbers.

That goes back to our earlier discussion only a short while ago - Ray Chiao's goi gravimagnetism effect of Earth's rotation. My first half-baked guess is that it would be too small but maybe not.

If it's not measured in a free fall frame, why would it be exactly c? Couldn't the tiny deviations -- if they are not statistical artifacts -- be due to variations in the earth's gravitational field?

Jack: only if it's g0i =/= 0.

But then it would have to be universal for all particles.
