Dumb question probably -- But is there a way to measure gravity in a particular area of space, or a "measurement" .. I.E. the gravity 10 miles above earth v.s 1000 miles above. Not force on another object, but some "unit" or measure of gravity itself.
This is just weird, and probably has a good explanation.. But how can a space suit or space have a distinct smell? Could the smell be coming from particles off their space suits? If so, how/why?
Thanks. I see your point about up/down not existing in all the solar systems and galaxies out there. But.. if you lined up all the N/S poles of all the planets, and suns, in a specific orientation, would there be a standard direction of rotation? I don't know if this can be figured out, I'm...
But why do most planets orbit in the same direction, and their solar system orbits another system, the same direction (?), all the way up to a blackhole, or larger object. (?) Where everything is swirling around like water down a massive drain? It seems this order needs some...
Why is everything in space spiraling around larger (more massive) objects? Does gravity make objects want to move/orbit in a specific direction, at a specific speed? Over time will an orbiting object increase speed?
Do objects sometimes orbit against the 'flow'?
Thanks in advance.
