Gravity Simulator

Is gravity the same everywhere? Experiment with how the ball reacts in each of the Solar System locations by dropping or throwing the ball. How similar or different is each location to Earth?

Things to think about:

  • In terms of gravity, which of the environments are most like Earth and which are the most different?
  • Is the ball harder to control in some locations?
  • Why does gravity vary on other planets?
