Einstein said there really is no 'force' of gravity. Mass warps spacetime into curves. Particles (or planets) move in as straight a line as they can in warped spacetime. This results in the appearance of a force.

I get that (I think.) So my question is, if this is the case why are we still looking for gravitons and gravity waves and trying to unify gravity with E/M, the SN and WN forces? Seems to me if gravity just the result of the curved geometry of spacetime near a mass, this is all unnecessary.

I guess I'll also go way out on a limb and ask if we know how mass warps spacetime or if we can only calculate the amount.

Be gentle with me. :shy:
