But for a layman and for those who were never got on to the science bandwagon, the theory is one hell of a question. Before Einstein came into the picture, Sir Isaac Newton quantified the force of attraction exerted between two bodies known as "gravity” but Newton never went into looking what is the source of it.  More →
