I haven’t asked my husband this, since he’s asleep, there might be a simple answer. I wasn’t good in science in school, oddly enough! Anyway, I was just thinking, creatures smaller than us, such as mice, weigh less. I think weight has to do with gravity, and gravity has to do with mass. I wonder why then, wouldn’t we weigh less on a larger planet in the same proportion as ours is to mice? I’m sure it’s a simple math problem, but it has me baffled. What is the variable, or difference, between us on a planet x number of times larger than us, and a mouse on a planet the same number of times larger than it?
Anyway, I’ll let you know tomorrow what my husband says, and if it’s something everyone knows, or something no one has ever thought of. I do have a habit of reinventing the wheel, but it’s my opinion, that I am just rethinking the wheel. Why not?
