The test they want to do is go up about 20000 miles away from earth and do the test, that would simulate doing it in flat space.
I see another way, a bit more difficult: Take a spacecraft as close to the sun as you can get without frying and do the same test, the difference should be a lot greater than what we see on earth, going in the other direction of bent space, deeper gravity well near the sun.
