I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but in outer space when we see inside the Planet Express ship why isn't Fry and everyone else who's inside it floating around? How can they just casually walk around without floating around and their hair sticking up?

They have magnetic boots and use rather a lot of hair gel  tongue

Either that or like just about every other Sci-Fi film or show they have some form ar artificial gravity.

He has not seen "Love & Rocket", but even in "Brannigan begin again" we can see that the ship has a gravity generator that not only generates gravity in 0G enviroments but it adjust the gravity to 1.0 even in +1Gs enviroments

Ok, thanx for the answers. True, I havn't seen "Love & Rocket", but I have seen "Branigan Begin Again", it was a long time ago though.

Like Bender, the PE ship also appears to be larger on the inside than on the outside--behold the huge Brain Room!

If future technology can produce all variety of hover-vehicles (hovercars, even hoverscooters in the background occasionally), it stands to reason that, via REVERSE POLARITY, artifical gravity should be possible, oh my yes. What? Get out of my house, you damned hippies!

I wanna know why all the planets they visit jus happen to have a very similar gravity to that od Earth.

Well, except for Stumbles 4...

The planets don't have the same gravity; the crew just alters their individual masses to suit the planet's natural gravity before arriving. Quite a simple process, really.  smile

Yeah, just ask Odo how it's done.

So What?  Brannigan has a gravity defencicy gene?
I THINK SO!!!

No, no, it's an artificial procedure, involving everyday scientific principles and Mom's Premium Blend Ultra-Modern Super-Science!!(tm).

What do you think those pre-launch sundaes are for? Caloric content? Monkeys aren't donkeys! Leave me alone, you penniless hippies!

In that case Fry was overdoing it a bit in "Bender gets Made" with a double portion, yet Leela's kick didn't send him flying through the room (not long enough anyways).

And if your looking for gravity-altering devices look no further than the gym in "Why Must I Be A Chrustacean In Love".

Fry: "Hey Leela, look at the superstud."
Leela: "Hmmm, someone has change the gravity, here let me help you."
I think she did that just to teach Fry a lesson.  laff

Well Perhaps in thye future htey have figured out the quantum theory of gravity which would allow them to generate gravitational fields in a confined area.
