Space-time and dark matter are relevant to the study of gravity, but do 
not explain gravity.

Quantum field theory has it that the graviton mediates the force of 
gravity.  Discovery of gravitons will move science farther down the road 
of understanding how the force of gravity is able to influence distant 

A good reference for the graviton is at
