: How do you know, that space is curved? I look at space. It seems me, that it is big room, without walls. Plnets has it's own places. Between planets is huge distances. And if you want to travell between two points. it need fast vehicles. Only fast vehicles. Time is same, at you. You get older, when travell. Like you travell ar earth. Earth is at space.

Jukebox, Gravity is thought to curve space, much like placing a bowling ball(our sun) on a stretched out piece of cloth. From our point of reference space seems to be uncurved, but in fact there are curves(or warps)wherever there is a large mass(sun, planet,blackthole,ect.)
