What´s the difference between General and Special Relativity?

General vs. Special Relativity

Albert Einstein's General and Special Relativity Theories both stem from a common presumption that space-time is not static. Special Relativity says that all objects traveling at speeds approaching that of light will distort in mass and length, and time will slow. The General Theory attempts to define gravity as a warp in space-time, rather than a force.
