Modern attempts to unify classical gravity and the quantum mechanical strong, electromagnetic and weak forces hint that subtle modifications of classical gravity may occur. I will describe the motivations, techniques, results and significance of two such probes: tests of the universality of free fall and of the inverse square law.
