"On this day [March 20] in 1916 , Albert Einstein announced his general theory of relativity.

General relativity generalises special relativity and Newton's law of universal gravitation, providing a unified description of gravity as a geometric property of space and time, or spacetime. In particular, the curvature of spacetime is directly related to the energy and momentum of whatever matter and radiation are present." [From Physics Today's facebook]
