This video is about how little we know about the behavior of gravity at short length and distance scales, what the constraints are on the inverse square law/Newton’s law of universal gravitation, at the human and microscopic and atomic scales. Only on solar system scales or larger do we have good constraints on Newton’s law of gravitation.
