    The Church, who governed during this time period, was hesistant to accept Galileo's spatial claims (a heliocentric system). it was later confirmed by Jesuit astronomers.

    because it took that long to go to an environment with no atmosphere, hence no air resistance.

    Because scientific study and research was kinda difficult at his time - the church was acting like a hooligan then. They brandished anyone (like they did to Galileo) whose findings conflicted the church's preaching, a traitor. Publishing one's scientific study in the open was a sure-shot suicide back then. So, there was hardly anyone who could/would/wanted to check out Galileo's claims.

    In general @Vaidehi09 - kinda historic links in the question.
