Re: GPS ERROR ? Kep's

Thanks everyone. This was something I heard at a meeting and should be considered hearsay, but interesting..
This person said that the government was the one that caught the "error"? and again hearsay, was to have it fixed by the end of this week. I guess "if" something where to move or change the Earth's speed, it could have an adverse affect on many things. Thanks for the info..
