If I drop a feather and a hammer on the earth, the hammer will reach the ground
first. What happens if I do the same thing on the moon? Will the hammer reach
the surface first also, or will they reach the surface at the same time? My
teacher says that they will reach the surface at the same time. I think the
hammer will reach first, but take 6 times longer to make it.
