A six-foot tall, wide-shouldered American man told his Russian colleague, 'I weigh 38 kg'. The Russian replied 'I only weigh 26 kg'.

How is this possible?


The men are astronauts, and they are on Mars. Weight = mass x gravitational pull. On Mars, there is far less gravity and so a man weighing 100 kg on Earth weighs only 38 kg on Mars.
