somewhere between earth and the moon gravity from these two bodies on a space pod would cancel. Is this location nearer to earth or the moon?

  • physics - ,

    Gravity cancels out closest to the less massive body.
    The ratio (Mass of object)/(distance from object)^2
    is the same for both earth and moon, when canceling occurs.

    In other words, you have to get closer to the moon for its gravity effect to equal that of the earth.
