What is Gravity?
This thirty minute video explains gravity. The study of gravity has played a central role in the history of science—from Galileo and Newton to Einstein's twentieth century theory of general relativity. Yet, in spite of five centuries of study, many aspects of gravity remain a mystery. How can gravity, which in many ways
is the dominant force in the universe, be at the same time, by far, the weakest of the four known forces in nature? See how physicists are
