Theory Of Relativity

Matter does not simply pull on other matter across empty space, as Newton had fancied. Rather matter garbles space-time and it is this garbled space-time that in turn impacts other matter. Objects (including planets, like the Earth, for instance) fly freely under their own inertia through space-time, following curved paths because this is the shortest possible path (or geodesic) in twisted space-time.

Einstein’s theories of both special relativity and general relativity have been confirmed to be precise to a very high level over recent years, and the data has been shown to substantiate many key projections; the most renowned being the solar eclipse of 1919 bearing testimony that the light of stars is indeed displaced by the sun as the light passes near the sun on its way to earth. The total solar eclipse allowed astronomers to for the first time to examine and dissect starlight near the edge of the sun, which had been previously unobtainable to observers due to the intense brightness of the sun. It also speculated the rate at which two neutron stars orbiting one another will move toward each other. The point at which this occurrence was authenticated, general relativity established itself accurate to better than a trillionth of a percent precision, thus making it one of the best ascertained principles in all of physics.
