How did Einstein come to the Conclusion of Spacetime?

  1. Jul 8, 2014 #1
    What led Albert Einstein to conclude that space and time were not two seperate entities but merely one spacetime. Also, has there been experiment to prove this notion?

    It was Hermann Minkowski:

    It's just a geometrical interpretation of Special Relativity, not a theory on it's own that makes testable predictions.
