|David Scott (Commander of Apollo 15 and the 7th person to walk on the Moon) performed an experiment in front of the television camera. He held a hammer in one hand and a feather in the other. He dropped both objects at the same time. Since there is no air resistance on the Moon, both the hammer and the feather fell at the same rate, which confirms Galileo's theory that all objects fall with the same acceleration regardless of their mass.|
