100th Anniversary of General Relativity

Authors: Christina Munns

On this historic day of the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the confirmation of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity with the solar eclipse of May 29th, 1919, I feel it is important to share my thoughts on this controversial topic, despite seemingly jumping in the proverbial deep end of classical physics! The trick in this theory is separating fact from fiction. I propose that gravity cannot distort space (& definitely not time!) as Einstein proposed since I concur with Gauss’ Law of Gravity (mathematician), who states that not only is gravity irrotational but it is also is a conservative force. Yes, indeed general relativity is obviously correct in many respects, but the vexed question of exactly WHAT Einstein’s field equations relate to in real life terms still remains a subject of debate.
