Visualisations of gravity on different planets

I found a cool video on Twitter demonstrating what gravity looks like on different planets and, after checking for a YouTube video, I found others doing the same thing but in different ways. In the Twitter video, we see a car dropping from the sky but in the visualisation video from Engineering and architecture, we see a bundle(?) of wood dropping on a car for each planet’s gravitational pull. The most sophisticated one I found was by Dr James O’Donoghue (who you may remember from his where he showed a 1km ball drop for each planet.

Yeah, Mr White! Yeah, science!
