Caption: Earth and Moon and spacetime. Animation of the gravitational fields of the Earth and Moon distorting the fabric of spacetime. Albert Einstein conceived of spacetime in his Special Theory of Relativity. He showed that space and time are not invariant, but should be considered a single continuum. In his General Theory of Relativity, Einstein then explained the phenomenon of gravity as a distortion of this spacetime continuum.
