Re: Does more mass change orbits (Bill Gill)
Everyone is armed with the 'theory of gravity' that heavier objects fall at the same speed as light ones. If the moon was twice as heavy it should still fall at the same rate. Asking me to study some more won't change this fact. And I was hoping someone might explain it in layman's language as I posed the question. If it would fall faster or slower if it was twice as heavy, I would be happy to listen to any explanation as to why. It shouldn't be that hard if confined to the moon and earth only.
