when Eddington in 1919 confirmed enisteins general relativity which propses that gravity is the direct consequence of warped space, a student asked einstien about what his reaction would be if the experiment proved him wong ... he replied sth like this: 'then i wouldve been sorry for the lord, for the theory is correct!'

i guess what he meant was that general relativity does such a great job explaining things in this universe, it seemed just too elegant and beautiful to be wrong!

what do i think of wapred space? definitely one of the greatest contributions to astrophysics .... it transformed our view completely from the newtonian perception of gravity and has given us substantiated by a better level of understanding on objects around us ....
