groppet: About 4 years ago I met Charlie Duke from Apollo 16, got to chat with him. I have a signed lithograph from him that I need to get framed. I wanna go to the moon!


Me too!

Pfft. Shouldn't the flag be in color?

meanmutton: I've never understood the moon landing deniers. During the moon landing, the astronauts were sending back a continuous stream of radio signals. Signals that everyone everywhere could pick up. A Russian astronomer in Leningrad and another in Moscow could easily calculate where the signals were coming from and could exactly map the entire trip based solely on those signals.

If the US never went to the moon landing, why didn't the Soviets call bullshiat at the time?


Don't even need that.

They left prism mirrors on there so we could do science. We still use them today.

Giltric: If we had actually gone to the moon, Johnny Cash would have had a line about it in Ragged Old Flag.

Therefore, we did not go to the moon.


We're pretty proud of that ragged old flag.

Artemus_Hackwell: Mr Guy: EvilEgg: Those blotches prove nothing, they look virtually indistinguishable from the other splotches. Am I supposed to take some needle-dicked scientist's word for what they are?

They should have provided a short animated GIF, since it's the sundial effect that demonstrates the flags are actually still there.

I thought I had read the ascent exhaust knocked the (or one of) the flag(s) down? If so was it re erected via a later missions or as later missions were in disparate locations did later missions each plant their own U.S. flag?


That was Apollo 11 that knocked the flag down on takeoff, but the other Apollo missions apparently learned from Buzz and Neil and planted the flag a little farther away from the return module.

How do you know we just didn't send up a Surveyor-type lander outfitted with them?

/Not a Moon-bat.
//Neil and Buzz were there.

Let's just sort it out. What do you say to all those conspiracy theorists who come up to you and say, "Does the moon really exist?" - Ali G to Buzz Aldrin... great moment in television.

All you need is a "BAM!" and you'll go "ZOOM!" right "To the moon!".

/but only if you're named Alice
