All inhabitants of the universe move and evolve through space and time, a set of four coordinates that transcends our imagination. Space and time are intertwined, forming a cosmic scenario that can be distorted by energy.

Massive celestial bodies deform and warp spacetime, dictating the movement of the celestial objects around them. A star like our Sun curves spacetime, which makes the surrounding planets orbit around it, following curved trajectories, even though there is no force that makes them turn!
