Is it possible to control gravity or lessen it?


Unfortunetely, no. There is still too much we don't know about gravity, so we have a hard time manipulating it. Astronauts on the International Space Station are still effected by gravity, but they don't feel it the same way because they are traveling so quickly around the Earth, they are constantly falling. We call this microgravity.
