Don't know what you are expecting here. Sorry if I spioled, but I guess most of this has already been established
Are Galileo and Newton relevant? Are the two objects a feather and a steel ball? Are we talking about the Renaissance?

Are Galileo Galileo, yes and Newton relevant? Are the two objects a feather and a steel ball? that would work, instead of steel ball it may have been a mallet Are we talking about the Renaissance? for one part

Tower of Piza, and two cannon balls?
Was Aristotle the other man?

Tower of Piza, and two cannon balls? What about them. They aren't relevant.
Was Aristotle the other man?
No. You don't need to know the name of the second man.

However Aristotle is somewhat relevant.

Is the idea that two objects (no matter their size and weight) will hit the ground at the same time (approximately) when dropped from a height the relevant theory here?

Yes, but there's a condition you left out.

Two objects, regardless of size and weight, when dropped from the same height, when wind resistance is not a factor, will fall at the same rate, and will hit the ground at the same time.

Yep. But how was this theory proved right. Now the next part isn't exactly true but find out for the sake of the puzzle.

does this have anything to do with experiments performed on the Moon's surface?

Is the fact that there's nowhere on earth that air resistance doedn't exist relevant?

Okay, actually it may help to find out who the second man was. Also, I correct what I said before; the second part of the story is true.

I remember seeing a video of a moonwalk that showed an astronaut dropping a feather and something else(like a rock) and watching them fall at the same rate. However, I don't remember which mission or which astronaut...

*******SPOILER*******


I'll use Random's email because he got it perfect.

The theory (that the acceleration caused by gravity is independent of size
and weight) was eventually proven near the end of the Apollo 15 mission when
David Scott performed a quick experiment.

He dropped a hammer and a falcon feather (chosen for the name of their
module) saying "How about that - Mr Galileo was correct" when they both hit
the lunar surface at the same time.
