Full Answer

A person's weight depends on factors such as mass and gravity. Because Earth has a much greater mass than Mars, it has a stronger force of gravity. As a result, people weigh less on Mars than they do on Earth.

At one time, Pluto was the planet where a human would weigh the least. In 2006, Pluto was demoted from a planet to a dwarf planet, so as of May 2014, Mars is the planet where humans would weigh the least.
