Facts About Sri Lanka

Lowest Gravitational Pull in the World

The European Space Agency’s (ESA) sent a satellite known as the ‘Gravity Field and Steady-State Ocean Circulation Explorer’ (GOCE) on a four-and-a-half-year mission tasked to find what was underneath the surface of the Earth. To do this they tracked the different gravitational effects on the surface of the Earth.

During this study they discovered that Sri Lanka and the region slightly below it has the least effect on gravity (meaning that your weight is lightest in Sri Lanka). AMAZING !!!!

Interesting Sri Lanka lowest gravity
Dark Blue represent the lowest gravitational effect. The Earth’s mass is not evenly distributed thus why the Earth doesn’t look like a perfect sphere in the image.
