There's a catch, however. It is true that the sun pulls you towards it, but it also pulls the earth towards it. The net effect is that both you and the earth are pulled towards the sun at the same rate, which will virtually negate any effect on your weight.
Are any of these calculations wrong?This is consistant with thenewmans2009's post "100kg is my mass. But to the sun, that only weighs 60 grams. So ..." (Although I don't follow his "So ...). The Sun's attractive power on Newmy is 60 g (and negative 60g at Noon). PERIOD.
At 100Kg, what difference in weight to expect ? Is it measurable for the ordanary person?
