Einstein was a brilliant man, but he made one mistake which so far no physicist has corrected.
He explained gravity as "curved space". This is a great way to visualize why, for example, light (which has no mass) is still affected by gravity and can not escape a black hole. It can also explain the movement of planets and other celestial bodies. He was however, wrong.
Curving space does not actually explain how it is possible for any object that is in rest compared to the earth to suddenly fall to the ground when you let it go. It does not explain how a thrown ball makes a different arc towards the ground depending on how hard you throw it. This is because a large mass does not curve space, it moves it. Indeed, gravity is the movement of space itself.
This not only explains the effect on mass-less light and the movement of planets just like the curving of space does, but it also accounts for why relatively stationary objects start to move “on their own”. You might believe this isn’t possible because “where would the space be moving to, then?”. This is actually not an issue, as space itself has no density and as such it doesn’t get compacted at the centre of the earth, nor does it become less dense at the edges of a gravity-fields outer effective border (it doesn’t actually have those though).
That gravity is not a force and looking for a “graviton” particle is useless should have been obvious decades ago as well, as if it was anything like any other force you would see heavier objects fall faster than lighter objects, which is not the case. (drop a feather and a lead ball in a vacuum and they both arrive at the ground at the same time).
