I have some difficulties understanding how Minkowski spacetime is flat and therefore its geodesics should remain parallel, but at the same time I see it described in other sites as hyperbolic and then geodesics should diverge. Any comment on my confusion about this will be welcome.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks
