Welcome to GP-B's archive page of Barron Storey's artwork. In 1987, Ross Barron Storey was approached by Stanford University and asked to create a series of art pieces for the project. Many of these were included in a beautiful 28-page brochure titled GRAVITY PROBE B - Testing Einstein with Orbiting Gyroscopes. The images from the brochure are laid out below. The text of the brochure can be read here. Click on the thumbnail pictures below to see the complete pictures.
