General comments

As of now (9 Sep. 2020), this page is only 2 lines of text. A lot more is needed. That being said, there is a more extensive description of general relativity on the Gravitation page already. Do we want to move the material from the Gravitation page here? Or have identical material on both pages? Not sure what is best to do. Mark Widmer (talk) 00:53, 10 September 2020 (UTC)

General vs. special relativity

The article says that general relativity "[reduces] to the special theory of relativity in localized regions of space and time." Is that actually true? I had thought of them as separate theories, but I never took a general relativity course. Mark Widmer (talk) 00:53, 10 September 2020 (UTC)
