Why Gravity is NOT a Force

The General Theory of Relativity tells us gravity is not a force, gravitational fields don’t exist. Objects tend to move on straight paths through curved spacetime.

    1. Hello Ali. I love to learn. I don’t know if you know this about me, but I was denied much of an education growing up. Plus the home was so dysfunctional I couldn’t concentrate on school anyway. For many years the adoptive father forbid me to have books including schoolbooks in the house. The town library would keep books I was reading behind the desk for me as I couldn’t bring them home. So shows that teach biology, science, animals, history, other subjects on a level that the average viewer can understand I really enjoy. Lately I have not had much time for them, but I did watch this one and wanted to share it. I am glad you are enjoying it. Hugs
