Galileo is famous for dropping objects from the tower of Pisa to show that heavier objects don't fall faster than lighter objects. The opposite was believed at that time based on the theories of Aristotle. Few people know that this test was done earlier by the scientist Simon Stevin in the tower of Delft. Galileo would, however, become famous for it.
