Gravity, something new to add to ecology

It is a new way to look at an old science. It may lead to a better understanding of our earth.

Wow..!!!
That was very interesting..!!!

I noticed all of America was 'blue' and California was 'darker' (slightly) than all the rest

Maybe thats why Californians are so 'laid back' and relaxed? |-)
Less gravity than all the rest, ehh???

Don't know if 'political climate' affects gravity :-) but it might... :thinking:
But then, the gravity difference may indeed promote being laid back :idea:
Might even indicate the best places to be on earth.. :wink: or .. not

What it could show is interesting, when things like, the moon's gravity, that of the sun and such are all put into play.
What I am wondering is if it can give indication toward fault lines and be a predictor / indicator of potential earth quakes.

The closeup of Japan showed almost everything in yellow with the fault line in blue but on the global rotatable ball the area looked red for some reason

All in all though a very interesting thing :tiphat:

That was really fascinating and it turns out I live in a red zone so mediumish gravity :D

Very interesting. So, maybe strong gravity in the UK: explains why we are all rubbish at the high jump!
