Caption: Earth and Moon and space-time. Illustration of the gravitational fields of the Earth and Moon distorting the fabric of space-time. Albert Einstein conceived of space-time 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 space-time continuum.
