Don’t heavier objects fall faster? Galileo’s Thought Experiment | Science4All 12

Standard

Back to physics; back on tracks on our way to Einstein’s theory of general relativity… We start with Galileo’s brilliant insight into gravity, one of the greatest insights I’ve ever got to discover — and I discovered it only about a year ago!

In short, most of what you’ve learned about Galileo’s law of falling objects is, at best, misleading and deceptive… Does it annoy you, as it annoyed some viewers? Or does it clarify a lot of things and get you very excited about Galileo, as it did for me?
