Suppose right now gravity disappears simultaneously everywhere in the known universe. What would happen? I couldn't figure it out completely... Obviously galaxies, black holes, and all macro-structures of the universe will fall apart; stars can't function as before; even planets. But will they fall to pieces, or will the strong and electromagnetic forces be enough to keep them solid? What would be the future development of such universe? Could we come up with some life forms suited for it? Could we adapt some of the existing ones for it? p.s. this should destroy the fabric of the space-time continuum, and i'm not sure whether time and mass would have a meaning anymore?
