Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith - Gravity in Space?
At a high Orbit in space Assuming that the General Grevious's ship's artificial gravity was knocked out from battle, hense the fact that the gravity changes when the ship falls downward to Courasaunt. If this was the case then the occupants in the ship would float in weightlessness. The gravity would not shift parallel to the Planet's surface at high orbit.

Note that the space battle doesn't really take place in space.

He's not geeky, he's right! This is a major slip-up, however George Lucas probably knows the laws of physics and didn't apply them to the scene, for it would mess up the movie.

--Plus this isn't our galaxy. It's a galaxy far,far away! duh! yes, but, the laws of physics are uniform throughout the Universe, so technically they apply to "a galaxy far, far away."

I think the gravity from the planet is strong enough to be influential on the ship. The ship is "falling" down to the planet anyway because of its gravity so why shouldn't Obi, Anakin etc. fall with it?

The battle takes place just above Coruscant, well within reach of the planets gravitational pull.

I think the_rock137 is right. The artificial gravity system was damaged, presumably the orientation got wonky. It didn't turn off the gravity, it just rotated the gravity to pull in another direction.

dude, you are sooo geeky! please dude, put down your laws of pysics book and just let this one slide. Really, like gravity in space really matters! Plus this isn't our galaxy. It's a galaxy far,far away! duh! It's an awesome movie and doesn't need to obay the laws of pysics!

oops, wait a minute. The people (Obi, Ani, R2) WOULD have been "weightless" because they would be falling at an extreme rate. The effect of gravity would have shifted towards the planet because the gravity generators and repulsorlift drives failed.

okay people, watch the commentary for the ROTS DVD and you will find that GL has the "space battle" take place in the upper-atmosphere of Coruscant, hence the entrails from ships and the such. This wasn't a slip up.

Well, listen: This is "Georgie's" personal universe, and there may be gravity as sure as there are battle sounds in it. ;-)

On the ship, there is a "gravity producer". It is simply tearing up due to the damage which causes all of the shifts in gravity.
