The hammer and feather

The hammer and feather were dropped by Dave Scott near the end of Apollo 15's last Moonwalk. In a demonstration, he showed that, with no atmosphere and air resistance, the hammer and feather fell at the same speed and hit the ground at the same time "proving that Mr Galileo was correct in his findings". The hammer and feather remain on the Moon.
