Earth’s Lowest gravity in Peru and here is why in 90 seconds reading time

Grace Space PRobe

Welcome to the Bernard Show!

Ever felt like gravity plays favourites? Spoiler alert: it does! Brace yourselves for a jaw-dropping journey because Earth’s gravity isn’t a one-size-fits-all deal.

Picture this: You’re chilling in Peru, and suddenly, gravity takes a coffee break. What’s the deal? Well, turns out, that Earth’s gravitational pull isn’t the same everywhere. It’s like a cosmic game of hide and seek, and we’re about to spill the beans on why some places feel lighter while others are a bit gravity-heavy.

So, why the inequality? There are many reasons for that. But I am giving you another fact which is surprising than this gravity inequality as the reason for it.

Mapping of Earth’s Gravity

In March 2002, NASA launched a new mission called “Grace”. The project had two satellites. The GRACE satellites were twin spacecraft. These satellites used a highly sensitive instrument known as a “microwave ranging system” to measure the distance between them with extraordinary accuracy. Variations in Earth’s gravity field cause slight changes in the distance between the two satellites, which the instruments could detect. By precisely measuring these changes, scientists were able to create detailed maps of Earth’s gravitational field. Eventually, the project came to an end in 2017.

Where are the lowest gravity

Ecuador, being close to the equator, is often mentioned in discussions about locations where gravity is slightly weaker. And also countries like Sri Lanka and Peru are on the list of discussions.

What’s the point that we are implying here

Did you know that the highest point on Earth, when we measure from the centre of Earth isn’t Mount Everest? It is the 10th highest point from the centre of Earth. 8 out of the 10 highest elevation places from the Earth’s centre are in South America. The other two are “Mt Everest” from Asia and “Kilimanjaro” from Africa. May be, farther you get from Earth’s centre, the less gravity force you experience.

Singapore-based famous Israeli-Palestinian Blogger Nuseir Yassin (NAS DAILY) did a video series about Ecuador on his journey across the globe throughout 1,000 days with daily 1 minute vlogs.

That information is not proven 100% without doubt. But, these are food for thought.

I guess that’s why I do here in Bernard Show.
