STRETCHING SPACETIME According to general relativity, the sun’s mass makes an imprint on the fabric of spacetime that keeps the planets in orbit. A neutron star leaves a greater mark. But a black hole is so dense that it creates a pit deep enough to preve

Albert Einstein's theory of relativity is the basis for our understanding of the universe, but if you still aren't quite sure how it works, this video does an excellent job of explaining.

According to Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity, gravity is no longer a force that acts on massive bodies, as viewed by Isaac Newton’s universal gravitation. Instead, general relativity links gravity to the geometry of spacetime itself, and particularly to its curvature. Learn more at the link!

This week is the 100th anniversary of Einstein's theory of general relativity. On November 25, 1915, Einstein published the field equations of gravity which are the heart of the general relativity. Sure, you've heard of Einstein – he was a smart guy. And you've probably heard of general relativity, but what does it mean? And, maybe more importantly, why should you care? For over two centuries before Einstein, gravity was described by Newton's law of universal gravitation. If you took physics…
