Gallileo on the tower of Pisa

Active selection:    
Gallileo on the tower of Pisa. The year is 1591. Galileo dropped two objects from the top of the Leaning Tower of Pisa to disprove Aristotle. Aristotle had said that heavy objects fall faster than light ones. Galileo's practical demonstration proves this is not so. Although Galileo was famous for his experiments, this story, which was told by Viviani, a student of Galileo's, may not be true.
