Kern the Gnome is on a quest: to teach people about how gravity changes depending on where we are. Bavarian scale maker Kern & Sohn sent the wee man on a goodwill mission to teach everyone about gravity and weight, stopping at schools and research stations along the way.
He even has his own website where people can track Kern’s travels, read his blog and get all their gravity questions answered.
In fact, just yesterday, Kern answered the question, “Does the elevation of an object affect its gravity?” Kern kindly replied that it does and he will attempt to demonstrate this personally by travelling — and getting weighed — as he climbs Mt. Evans in Colorado. As he ascends we should see him shed some weight.
