    This is turd. Gravity on moon is 0.6g, mars is approx similar to earth and Jupiter is a fucking gas giant. All atmosphere and no surface…


    Where did you get that from? Gravity on the moon is 0.16g, all of the above figures are correct. Just because a planet is gaseous it doesn’t stop it from having both mass and a (admittedly approximate) surface.


    Also Outer space is ‘between’ celestial bodies, not on them. So your weight is 0lbs. Also also use fucking metric like the rest of the civilized world.


    Both fair points, but I’m pretty sure that this chart is meant as a humorous item for non-technical consumers, not as an actual reference for astronauts to carry around with them.


    You’d be okay if you didn’t open your mouth but you advertise your ignorance with far to much fervor.

    The Moon has 1/6th the gravitational pull of the Earth, not .6 (1/6 is also expressible as 0.16 as was pointed out by Anon). The gravitational pull of Mars is .38 that of Earth; less than half. You’re probably thinking of Venus which is most similar to the Earth at .88G.

    You don’t automatically weigh nothing in outer space. Outer space just means beyond Earth’s atmosphere. If you were on a platform above the earth that was NOT IN ORBIT but merely suspended above the earth then you would still feel the force of gravity. The reason things in orbit appear to float is because they’re actually FALLING around the earth. An orbit is traveling within the gravitational well of a body but moving perpendicular to that body such that you don’t intersect it. As you orbit a sphere such as the Earth, you’re literally traveling parallel to the surface fast enough that its curvature drops the surface away from you as you fall toward it.

    Gravity is EVERYWHERE. It’s between the planets. It’s what holds the planets in orbit around the sun. It’s what holds the stars together across light years to form galaxies. It is what holds super-structures of galaxies that span hundreds of millions of light years across portions of the visible universe. If you’re not moving fast enough in relation to it then you’re going to fall into it. If you are moving fast enough then you’ll just have your trajectory altered by it.

    And if you’re going to criticize the measurement system then criticize them for printing a unit of measure at all because if you weigh 100 lbs or 100 kg you’ll weigh 1/6 of your Earth measured weight on the Moon regardless.


    “you’re literally traveling parallel to the surface fast enough that its curvature drops the surface away from you as you fall toward it.” <- That's well put.

    in space the preferred term is mass not weight


    No, that’s exactly what this isn’t. Your mass is constant anywhere in the universe because it’s the amount of you that there is. Your weight is the amount of force your mass provides due to gravity and so varies depending on how strong a gravitational field you are in, which is what this chart shows – depending on your mass, how would your weight vary under gravitational fields?
