Right!  They will have the same mass!

Your weight depends on the amount of gravity of the planet or moon you are on.  Your mass stays the same, whether you are on earth, in space, on the earth's moon, or on Jupiter.  But your weight can be different, depending on where you are.

For example, you would weigh much less on the moon, because the moon's gravity is only one-sixth of the earth's.  When astronauts walked on the moon, they looked like they were jumping on a trampoline!
