Some believe that gravity can be demonstrated in space like this. 4 people pull the corners of a bed sheet tight representing another dimension believed to exist in space. If you place a basketball in the middle "representing a celestial body like earth" you would create a certain depression in the sheet. A more dense object like a bowling ball would create a deeper impression. If you rolled a marble to around the basketball it would roll around the depression getting closer and closer to the basketball like a roulette ball until it eventually hits the basketball. If this is true then maybe it could be said that gravity travels?

I had a guy in my bowling league who was so dense he made an impression on everyone.
But no matter how he rolled no pins would ever fall over.

It made me a believer in string theory.

The technological impact alone is quite staggering
