The smallest gravitational force ever recorded has been measured, with scientists upturning common assumptions about just what counts as “too small” to be quantified. Although all objects demonstrate some sort pull based on their mass, we’re most familiar with – and feel the impact primarily from – planetary bodies, like the gravity Earth exerts upon us.
That doesn’t mean other, far smaller objects don’t have gravitational fields of their own, just that so far there’s been no ready way to measure…
