Since it's been observed that mass causes the curvature of the spacetime continuum. I'm wondering how it curves the spacetime continuum at a distance. For example, a planet will curve the spacetime around it millions of miles away, yet all around the planet is the almost perfect vacuum of outer space. So how do objects cause the curvature of the spacetime continuum so far away?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
