In contrast, his general theory of relativity accounts not only for these, but also for bodies that accelerate (i.e., change their velocity).

Einstein began his theory with a thought experiment--that is, an experiment carried out only in the mind of the experimenter. General Theory of Relativity deals with the general theory of relativity and covers topics ranging from the principle of equivalence and the space-theory of matter to the hypotheses which lie at the bases of geometry, along with the effect of gravitation on the propagation of light.
