Imagine a bowling ball resting on a trampoline. While the ball is resting, an indentation is being formed into the trampoline. In general relativity, a massive object like the Earth sits in space and both space and time must curve around it which creates an indentation in the universe just like a bowling ball on a trampoline.
5.General Relativity 2
Now imagine a golf ball being rolled onto the trampoline. The golf ball would head toward the bowling ball and get caught in the indentation and crash into it. This can relate to how the moon come into orbit around the Earth.
Energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light squared. This formula shows that a small amount of matter contains a gigantic amount of energy. This is used to explain the energy produced in nuclear fusion (stars) and fission (power plants)
