High Gravity

Postby gmroaming » Fri Feb 10, 2012 2:04 pm

Did you guys ever get the feeling that when you are climbing in other parts of the world that you feel heavier or lighter?

Turns out NASA has discovered gravity is not constant around the world. see GRACE Gravity Model for a map of high and low gravity areas. SA unfortunately seems to be in a moderately high gravity zome :(
