That famous experiment during a solar eclipse, which showed the curvature of light from a star as the light rays passed by the sun, pretty much I gather confirmed Einstein's space time curvature theory.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: Does spacetime curve into one of those hidden spatial dimensions that M-theory talks about, or is it an 'ordinary' curvatire in 3D space? I find either scenario difficult to comprehend.
