How can the Moon or a satellite stay in orbit around the Earth and not just fall towards the surface?
A new planet has been found. The mass of the planet is half the mass of the Earth. The planet has a Moon that is two times as massive as our Moon. If you could travel to all of these places, how would your mass compare on each? How would your weight compare on each?
