Summary: In the last decade topnotch experiments (LIGO and GP-B) have putted into evidence the viscoelastic nature of the space time. In the present work we have applied the viscoelastic constitutive equations for a spacetime model, based on the fractional Zener representation, which is the most general way of thinking about materials. Dispersion and dissipation are discussed in the frame of the spacetime, considered as a viscoelastic material.
