This is a question majority of people are trying to figure out the answer to. Is there gravity in space? Today, I'm going to answer that question.

Question: Is there gravity in space?

Yes. Studdies have shown that there in no such thing as 'no gravity'. When you think about it, how would the planets stay a specific distence away from the sun, how is the sun staying in one place and why are the planets not flowting around everywhere? This is because gravity is holding them in place. When your in space you might feel weightless but this is because nothing is stopping their fall due to the force of gravity. On Earth we feel weight. Weight is the force of the ground holding us up against the pull of gravity.

Another question you might want to know the answer to is why austonauts in orbit in the space shuttle seem to float. The answer to this is because when an object is in orbit, the object’s inertia(the dictionarys meaning of inertia is a property of matter by which it continues in its existing state of rest or uniform motion in a straight line, unless that state is changed by an external force) (which wants to go in a straight line away from Earth) is exactly balanced by the force of gravity pulling it downwards.
