No, it is always dependent on the distance from the object, hence the inverse square law. So, the higher you are, the lesser the effect of gravitation on you. There's even a greater effect at sea level than, say, on a mountain.
Really? I never heard about the lesser gravity at altitude? For instance, I used to live in a town that was 7200 ft. Elevation. And while we all knew about the thinner air and it's effects....I'm a runner!...I never heard about less gravity. I'm sure it's negligible though, eh? Like I maybe weigh half of an oz. Less in Flagstaff than in Austin?
So, Denver. The Rockies baseball team. Their stadium Coors Field. Renowned for balls going farther, more home runs, a pitcher's nightmare. I always attributed all that to thinner air. Do you mean to say lesser gravitational pull is also part of the equation? How can I never have heard this? LOL
