The kilohertz brightness oscillations discovered around neutron stars in low-mass X-ray binaries are remarkably sensitive probes of strong gravity and dense matter. I will highlight some of the fundamental strong-gravity results obtained with RXTE observations. I will also discuss the advances expected with a future high-area X-ray timing mission, including the exciting prospect of being able to test quantitatively the predictions of general relativity in strong gravity.
