An animated look at how spacetime responds as a mass moves through

An illustration of gravitational lensing showcases how background galaxies — or any light path — is distorted by the presence of an intervening mass, ...

The spacetime curvature around any massive object is determined by the combination of mass and distance from the center-of-mass.

When an observatory views a strong source of mass, like a quasar, galaxy, or galaxy cluster, it can often find multiple images of the lensed, magnified, ...

Any distant gravitational source can emit gravitational waves and send out a signal that deforms the fabric of space, which manifests as gravitational ...

It is quite clear that a large mass cannot pull this fabric 'down' and cause the other objects within it to move along ...

The results of the 1919 Eddington expedition showed, conclusively, that the General Theory of Relativity described the bending of starlight around massive ...

Instead of an empty, blank, 3D grid, putting a mass down causes what would have been 'straight' lines to instead become curved by a specific amount.

Experiments in a smooth-moving vehicle yield the same results as experiments conducted on land.

In deep space, away from gravity, you could stand in an accelerating spaceship and weigh the same as you would on Earth.

Moving clocks tick more slowly, but perspective matters.

Those moving faster than you appear to contract in size (in the direction of their motion).

The effects of quantum gravity are anticipated to become important on very small (Planck-sized) distance scales, and very close to extremely large masses.

Experiments in a smooth-moving vehicle yield the same results as experiments conducted on land.

The reason for including "time" in space-time is that Special Relativity tells us that a moving frame experiences time dilation. Hence when objects' motions ...
