I don't mean to throw a monkey wrench into the discussion, but I noticed this:

Xaihe wrote:Since gravity is stronger at the surface of a planet than at the center of a planet, does that also mean spacetime is curved less at the center of the planet, or just that the gravitational effect is canceled?


If I remember correctly, gravity is stronger at the center of a planet, not at its surface. This is why gravity is slight stronger at the poles of the Earth than at the Equator; the poles are closer to the core.

Am I wrong, or am I just reading the comment incorrectly?
