We describe two space based gravitational physics experiments, the Gravity Probe B Relativity Mission (GPB) and the Satellite Test of the Equivalence Principle (STEP). GP-B will perform precision tests of two independent predictions of general relativity, the geodetic effect and frame dragging. STEP will provide a precision test of a foundation of general relativity, the Equivalence Principle.
