Cosmic membrane theory (CM) uses the model of a 4-dimensional balloon with a thin skin, expanding in hyperspace. A homogeneous vector field acts perpendicularly from outside on the membrane and causes the gravitation. CM denies the frame-dragging effect of the spin axis of an orbiting gyroscope (also named Lense-Thirring effect). The results of the Gravity Probe B experiment are correct only for geodetic precession. In the case of the frame-dragging effect, data were selected with a particular goal in mind, and only this way they yielded the desired result.
