I have read in various places that according to General Relativity space contracts around large bodies. And moving further out of the gravitational field, space dilates.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is the logical basis for this?

Is it in fact even true and can it be measured?

Does anybody know of any sources on the web that cover this topic?
