Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If gravity is result of curved spacetime;

1.why are there eliptical orbits around spherical bodies?

2.Why don't I stop accellerating when I reach the lowest point of the curvature, ie, on surface of earth I am at lowest point of curvature I should stop accellerating (maybe fall back up) ?
