I would like to hear different examples of presenting the difference that general theory of relativity relates between a stretched piece of spacetime around a planet and a not stretched one far away from any kind of mass or energy distortions...these examples i would like to be written in a language that could be understood from students of high school....so it should be like 1 m of stretched space and 1m of not stretched one would have this kind of difference etc....i ask this because i believe that through the exchange of knowledge we can always improve our understanding and simplify them for us and for our students...thanks in advance!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
