What is Gravity?

Every object in the Universe attracts every other object in the universe.  This invisible force for masses to move toward each other is called Gravity.

When you weight yourself, your weight may be around 30kg to maybe 50kg because of Gravity. Your weight is the result from the product of the force of gravity and the mass of you.

Why two masses separated in space have a gravitational attraction to one another remains unknown, despite much research and various theories. These theories are listed on the left: Newton, Einstein, and Quantum.
