Pop: Open your mind: The question of jumping


Question
 
How come gravity keeps planets around the sun but we can break that force momentarily to jump?


The Obvious Answer

It’s just how gravity works.


Our Answer

They aren’t the same force. It is one of those human arrogance things that make us believe it must be the same force. Of course humans can break gravity, we’re amazing. More likely, because the consequence of these forces is similar, science got lazy and gave them the same name. Also, we are kept flat on the ground while planets spin around which are entirely different movements, I know that there are different forces involved with these objects but there is a logical step missing here. You don’t see a planet and a ball and call them both apples because they’re both round.
