Needles to say I am a visitor here. I do not belong to the science world;)
But I have read both of these things before:
- Apple falls to the ground because curved spacetime pushes it there (same force as keeps moon in orbit)
- Apple 'falls' to ground because the ground is rushing up to meet the apple (which is actually suspended in space) because of Earth's acceleration through space.
I don't think these can both be true. I'd appreciate any clarification - thank you.
