OLogy: Space Jell-O

Mix up some Jell-O, and find out how space bends around anything with mass. 

Did you know that space can bend? Albert Einstein proved that space bends around anything that has mass — planets, stars, even you. The more mass an object has, the more space bends around it.

To see Einstein’s theory for yourself, make your very own edible space out of Jell-O. Of course, space isn’t exactly like Jell-O, but you will be able to see how invisible space bends around different kinds of matter.
