  1. Well, most people would have guessed that the heavier object would hit the ground first, but gravity pulls all objects downward at the same speed, regardless of their weight. Air resistance influences this on Earth so for more accurate results you need to do this experiment in a vacuum. Can’t believe I never seen this before! It was a nice homage to Galileo 🙂

  2. Angry Sam is right. This couldn’t be on the moon, since we never went there. It’s really amazing how they went through all the trouble to suck the air out of the soundstage for this shot. Plus speeding the film up so it looks like the moons gravity is less.

    Or maybe it was just an inflated hammer balloon.
