Einstein Demonstrations- General Relativity
Overview:
Space-Time Sheet – use a spandex sheet it is possible to show a heavy mass in the center of the grid distorting space-time. Rolling smaller balls past the mass, within the well but not into the mass, will illustrate the deflection of light that appears in an intense gravitational field. This deflection also lends itself to supporting the particle nature of light.
