  2. I believe I answered this elsewhere are well, but...

    Weight and mass are two different things.

    Mass is a measure of the amount of matter contained in something, weight is a measure of force (F-ma).

    Doubling the gravity would certainly affect the weight, but do you think it would affect the mass?
