Dear all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've read the following argumentation for curved spacetime:

1) From the equivalence principle one can derive that time is dilated in gravitational filed..

2) The velocity of light is constant for all local observers

3) If time dilates, then also space must dilate if one wants the velocity of light to remain constant.

Does this make any sense?

Kindest regards.
