It was suggested that a new planet existed inside Mercury's orbit which could perturb it in such a way as to fix the problem. ) The name given to the hypothetical planet was Vulcan. Alas, the mystery planet Vulcan is not there. Instead, Einstein proposed that the flat space of Newton and Minkowski had to be given up for the curved spacetime of general relativity. In this curved space, Mercury's orbit would deviate slightly from that predicted by Newton, explaining the observed discrepancy. While this removed the need for the planet Vulcan, it introduced possibilities that are much more exciting.
