You have measurement being taken from a different inertial frame than from within the inertial frame of the actual flight taking place on Earth. From the satellite's perspective, the actual path length is contracted (shorter), therefore the time of flight is less than what would be expected over the greater length as measured on Earth. Though much smaller of an effect, Gravitation redshift also has to be taken into account since the satellite is in a weeker gravitational field as compared to the ground level field intensity. I would have thought both would have been accounted for since these are basic principles of Physics taught in most first-year college courses. This is unfortunate for what would have been a great discovery and many times more interesting. But, I guess we will still have to wait for the final confirmation. Listen to 'Strange Days...
