Space And Gravity And Stuff...

a: Space ~
b: a giant rubber sheet

What: "Stuff with matter deforms the space around it, making other stuff fall towards it - imagine a giant rubber sheet which is like space. And imagine if you put a ball on it (which is the stuff or matter). The ball with dent the middle of the sheet. So if you put a smaller ball on the sheet, it will roll down the dent to the ball."

What Is The Taste Of Fried Space Time

a: Space time ~
b: a questionable sausage

What: Space-time is like a questionable sausage: nobody knows who or what made it, or where it came from, or what it's made of, and if you eat it all you'll probably die. Moral: don't eat space-time.

Sum Mixed Up Metaphorresss...

a: Space voyage ~
b: long trip with roads and valleys

What: "A long-distance space voyage is like a road trip over "a substantial number of hills and valleys," explains Olds, now a project engineer at Analytical Mechanics Associates, Inc., in Hampton, Va. The differential evolution algorithm takes advantage of those ups and downs by helping the spacecraft make use of gravity's peaks and valleys."

a: space exploration ~
b: a gateway drug

What:

"Space is like a gateway drug for science. It's so epic, beautiful and awe-inspiring that it draws you in, which leads to questions about chemistry, geology, physics and million other subjects. From near-earth exploration, to looking back on the earth, to interplanetary missions and distant galaxies, 'space' as a subject is, quite literally, limitless."
