Question description

The effects of gravity have created our world, long before humans were around to contemplate its characteristics and origin. Not until the late 1600's did Isaac Newton mathematically model this force for us to relate it to the motions on Earth and in the cosmos. Mathematical calculations of force were not possible until the late 1700's, when when Henry cavendish successfully carried out laboratory experiments to quantify the model. The staus of the concept off gravity stable for the next 100 years until it was challenged by Albert Einstein. He did not agrue the mathematical correctness of Newton's Law of Gravitation, but rather the nature of gravity itself. 



How did each one explain why two objects attracted each other? (this is the meat of your response) 
Did they base their views on actual measurements or on mathematical models? Were their ideas upheld by later measurements? 
What would each of them say if asked, "What would be the immediate effect on the Earth if the sun were to suddenly disappear?" 

Since we are now another 100 years from Einstein's work, can we say one of them was right and the other was wrong?
