Sisyphus Posted December 14, 2005 Share Posted December 14, 2005 It's well known and easy to demonstrate that the gravity inside the sphere, exerted by the sphere, would be zero at any point whatsoever. You don't get pulled towards the center, you don't get pulled towards the nearest edge (even if you're right next to it), it doesn't matter how big the sphere is or how thick its walls are. It doesn't matter if it's 50 billion miles across with 10 thousand mile thick lead walls that you're right next to. The net force is exactly zero. Always.
