Spacetime Tells Matter How to Move

Lecture no. 16 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity

Spacetime Tells Matter How to Move

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

See how gravity affects Minkowski’s spacetime geometry, discovering that motion in a gravitational field follows the straightest path in curved spacetime. The curvature in spacetime is not caused by gravity; it is gravity. This startling idea is the essence of Einstein’s general theory of relativity.
