: Gravity?

: What it is?

It is the geometry of space-time.

: How we see it working?

Usually with your eyes. : : When we measure my weight at earth, it is example, 80kg.

Not quite, kg is mass not weight.

: At moon it is, some about 20 kg.

No, its still 80kg.

: At space, my weight is, 0 kg.

No, its still 80kg.

: This means, that earth, or moon, or sun, dont has weight.

No, weight simply does not apply in that context.

: Gravity is not that thing, which keep planets together.
