Can one encode the causal information of a spacetime in a metric space structure? In 2016, Sormani and Vega conjectured how this may be done. In this talk, I will present some recent results confirming that the answer is yes. Not only can the causal relation be encoded, but also the condition of global hyperbolicity can be characterized via completeness of the corresponding metric space. This is joint work with Annegret Burtscher.
