neutron star and space gravity
A neutron star has a gravitational force of about 2×1012 N/kg.
Since its density is so great, the stars blocks all gravity coming from space and that gravity does not go through the star. It becomes part of the neutrons. That means the gravity going in all direction in space can exert a force of about 2×1012 N/kg. Since earth blocks some of that gravity and the result is only about 10 N/kg, that means planet earth blocks only about 5×10-12 % of gravity coming from space.
Because neutron stars called also black holes blocks gravity, an object close to the star is pushed toward the star with a force of 2×1012 N/kg. It seems for an observer that the star is attracting the object but in reality, the object is pushed toward the star because it receives a force from only one direction, as illustrated here.
