I will discuss how gravity scattering amplitudes of many different gravitational theories can be obtained from various gauge theories through a double-copy procedure. The basic idea goes back to the old relation between open and closed strings, but I will argue that gravity being the double copy of two gauge theories is a more general notion. I will present new striking examples of gravity theories being double copies, and identify the corresponding underlying gauge theories.
