Newtons Laws of Gravitational Attraction

Newton determines that gravity controls the motion of all objects in the Universe (i.e. Newton’s apple)

Objects in the Universe attract each other with a force that varies directly as the product of their masses and inversely as the square of their distances

All masses, regardless of size, attract other masses with gravity. You don’t notice the force from nearby objects because their mass is so small compared to the mass of the Earth.
