Darky Posted April 20, 2017 Report Share Posted April 20, 2017 Hi all, In school, we've been taught that while in space; we can float around and have no weight at all. You can float around, yes. Having no weight at all is an entirely different story. The formula for weight is what? : Mass * Gravity. Now if I'm to prove my point, I need to first prove that space isn't Zero-G (Zero Gravity). Let's for instance take the sun; all planets are in a orbit around it, due to? Yes, Gravity! So if for some reason you jumped out of your rocket, you won't leave the Galaxy. You'll just obtain an orbit around the sun unless you're accelerating at high levels. So this is confirmed that space has gravity. Gravity keeping the planets in orbit. However, that's only the big picture, as stars aren't the only thing giving gravity. It has been proven that anything with mass has a gravitational pull. For example, Earth. If space had Zero-Gravity, why the nincapoops (my polite way of saying '****') is the moon in a fixed orbit around Earth. Yes the gravitational pull is low, but there is always gravity in space. Not only does this correct our learning on gravity and tell us the truth about space, it also proves that even in space, you have a weight, just extremely low. Zero-Gravity may not be the right word to describe space - so let's use Micro-Gravity instead. Regards and hopes that you take this positively and use this to carry on your projects, Darky.
