if the planet is really small [compared to others, like Pluto], does that mean it has no gravity? like, would you fly on Pluto because it's gravitational pull isn't as strong?

    All matter has mass and gravity. Because Pluto is much smaller than earth, you could not fly, but you could jump further.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
