Latest comment: Looks like that one video pretty much puts the "faked moon shot" and the "there's an atmosphere on the moon" theories to rest.

Or maybe, the people in the white coats got their maths right, and the acceleration due to gravity neglects mass? Nah, lets just believe the nutty conspiracy theories, what have scientists done for us anyway...?

Obviously it was a very very very light hammer.

Neglects mass!? What are you on about!? It doesn't neglect mass, otherwise it wouldn't fall, it neglects air resistance due to the fact that space is a vacuum, remember?

Take an general physics course dimwits. Mass times the acceleration due to gravity equals weight. Acceleration is the same in vacuum for all objects because there is no differential force due to air resistance.

Cheers Searchguru, a heavy feather ? Seems to me that you have the answer. My solution was far too much hammer oriontated. Galileo didn't know squat!

Stop being pedantic, you know what he means! Acceleration neglects mass in the respect of different masses

Guest, people are just messing around, and having a bit of fun. The dimwit is someone who can't see that. Galileo proved this hundreds of years ago by dropping stuff off the tower of pissa. I think everybody here understands basic physics.
