Wait, "all the American flags," there is more than one on the moon?
#165 to #22 - anon (07/20/2013) [-]
The USA has been the only country with the technology and money to land on the moon, so far. The USSR was, however, able to land an unmanned capsule there, however no flag was placed. Six flags. American flags. My country 'tis of thee.

Yes, There we 6 different missions in which we landed on the moon. And I believe all of them were in different locations so there is probably 6 different flags.

Hmm, I knew there around that many missions (I admit I was unaware the exact number was six). But I thought we only placed a flag on the first mission.
User avatar #199 to #196 - EpicWin (07/21/2013) [-]
There was a flag for all 6 and they think the first one fell over but the rest still stand

We should send all black people to the moon so they can become white.

The flag wouldn't be waving due to lack of air. The only reason it waved when the first placed it was due to the top bar bouncing that held the American flag in place, While this may be a true fact, the picture is fake.

#23 to #20 - anon (07/20/2013) [-]
Wrong. They are real flags with a metal rod across the rod of the flag to hold it up.
#28 to #15 - anon (07/20/2013) [-]
"this picture is fake"

no **** , dude. the picture is taken from the ground. do you remember someone taking pictures from the surface of the moon within the past couple of decades? because I sure don't.
User avatar #86 to #15 - dracomancer ONLINE (07/20/2013) [-]
Actually that's incorrect. It's very possible that this picture in particular is fake but the flag would move as long as something started moving it in the first place. Since there's no gravity in space there's not going to be any force moving against it to slow or stop it so it would move consistently until the end of time.
User avatar #198 to #86 - iamrexraptor ONLINE (07/21/2013) [-]
air resistance* gravity would still pull it to a stop.
#172 to #86 - drfaust (07/20/2013) [-]
There is gravity on the surface of the moon. It's only about a 1/6th as powerful as here on Earth's surface but it is gravity.

The flag is "wavy" because during travel it got wrinkled. They decided to leave it that way. theres also bars on the top and sides to hold it up, however when wrinkled, looks wavy
User avatar #17 to #15 - ihavenoname (07/20/2013) [-]
the pictures just seems to be an old picture of the flag with the flag poorly (possibly mspaint) filled in with white. In doesnt match the contrast of the rest of the picture at all.

The flags were only ever for the TV cameras, they were never meant to last. The flag from Apollo 11 (the original) blew over immediately when the lander took back off. This was reported by Buzz Aldrin and later confirmed by imaging of the moon's surface. The real permanent fixtures on the moon are the plaque and the rovers/landers.

On an almost completely unrelated topic; A man once accused Buzz Aldrin of faking the moon landing and was promptly punched in the face.
I thought that information was too awesome not to share...

Why is there always some asshat who walks right in front of the camera for the important part  for those videos, i swear.

Where Do Deleted Files Go?

Vsauce mentioned this in his video at about 8.50, but I do suggest that you watch the whole video
User avatar #90 - bforbellyrub (07/20/2013) [-]
the photo is probably fake, but it still is true about the flag turning white
#128 to #90 - anon (07/20/2013) [-]
