Is there an explanation for gravitational time dilation in string theory? String theorists say their equations can make the same predictions as general relativity, so I would assume string theory predicts gravitational time dilation, but how would that work? If gravity is no longer mediated by curved spacetime, but carried by a particle, why would clocks slow down in strong gravitational fields?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
