is it possible to create an area wth perfectly 0 gravity ? y ?

No. It's not possible to create an area with perfectly zero gravity.
Reason: Gravity, g = G MEarth /R2 Where R : distance from center of Earth
No matter where you are, there will be some R and Mass of Earth in the above expression. At large distances R becomes great. The expression thus becomes small, but it will have some finite non-zero value. For zero gravity, Mass of Earth has to be zero which is not possible. or R - infinitely large so that M of Earth does not matter.
