The theoretical significance for gravitation of the lunar laser ranging experimental results (see Alley, 1982, in this volume, for a summary of these and for additional references) can be stated at several different conceptual levels. These include:
a highly accurate Eötvüs experiment;
“Gravity pulls on gravity;”
measuring gravity’s non-linearity; and
confirming General Relativity’s post-Newtonian gravitational vector potential and full non-linear potential.
