Space -- The definition of space in physics is contentious. Various concepts used to try to define space have included: -- the structure defined by the set of "spatial relationships" between objects -- a manifold defined by a coordinate system where an object can be located. -- the entity that stops all objects in the universe from touching one another In classical physics, space is a three-dimensional Euclidean space where any position can be described using three...
