My question is simple. If we have a spaceship, whose top half is in a region of highly curved space, while the bottom half is in a region of flat space, will the top half bend in a way, which will break the ship in two?
Or will it not break, because the ship is not bending, but rather space itself is bending?
I am not concerned about how realistic it is to have such a sharp difference in curvature between two nearby regions of space. My question is IF there was such a situation, then what would happen?
