A Civilization advance.
Isaac Newton recognized that every thing (mass) in the universe exerts an attraction on every other thing (mass), and he examined this attraction in detail in his theory of gravity. Newton postulated that gravity was a universal force that affected all matter. Albert Einstein's work led to a major reinterpretation of the theory of gravity. Scientists now believe that gravity affects energy as well as matter, and that it is a fundamental warping of the fabric of space-time. Some theorize that the force of this warping is transmitted by as-yet-unobserved particles called gravitons.
