-I think a lot of people have misconceptions on the implication of Galileo'​s experiment at Pisa Tower. Wikipedia says that Galileo "is said to have dropped two spheres of different masses from the Leaning Tower of Pisa to demonstrate that their time of descent was independent of their mass" [(https://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Galileo%27s_Leaning_Tower_of_Pisa_experiment)].
