: : The gravity of the black hole affects the : : spacetime around it. Light always travels : : : : in a straight line. In relation to spacetime : : : : : : light bends. We are in space time and it seems to us that light is bending, while actualy it is the space and time around it which is bending.

So does that mean that Earth's movement too isn' really eliptical but linear in curved spacetime (coused by Sun's gravitation)?
