In the first part of this talk I will explain why non-relativistic gravity has become part of recent research and I will give a short review of a frame-independent reformulation of Newtonian gravity, called Newton-Cartan gravity. In the second part of the talk I will discuss some recent research on the properties of non-relativistic string theory and how non-relativistic branes fit into the picture.
