GeoJeopardy! Fridays #81

Time for GeoJeopardy! Fridays, because, the rat saw his shadow.

- A Matter of Gravity -

British scientist Henry Cavendish made the first reliable measurement of gravity late in this century

  NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Lab puts astronauts in a simulation of this condition that's experienced during space flight


 The Sun's gravity is said to perturb, or affect, this path of the Moon relative to the Earth


Building on the work of Galileo and Kepler, he published the first quantitative theory of gravitation in 1687


There's "gravity" in this term for the point in an object that, if supported, puts the whole object in equilibrium
