The strength of gravity has been measured to new precision

We now have the most precise estimates for the strength of gravity yet. Two experiments measuring the tiny gravitational attraction between objects in a lab have measured Newton’s gravitational constant, or Big G, with an uncertainty of only about 0.00116 per cent. Until now, the smallest margin of uncertainty for any G measurement has been 0.00137 per cent.
