Me and someone else at my work are having an argument about this and need to go to the experts. He says that if the earth wasn't spinning and wasn't orbiting through space around the sun at high speeds, the mass of the earth would be less and therefore the gravity. Basically he stated that the majority of what keeps us on the earth is gravity, but that the gravity is much greater than it would be if we weren't moving. Also as part of his argument he stated that an object moving faster has more mass. I thought that an object always has the same mass, it's forces that change. If there is any insight you could provide it would be extremely helpful! firstname.lastname@example.org
