gmorning Apollo landing flags still fluttering in lunar breeze
Advertisement
Or at least they would be if the moon had an atmosphere, which it doesn't. New images from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera reveal that some of the American flags planted during the Apollo missions of the 1970s are still standing.

[Image: 89C9_5017226B.jpg]

Mark Robinson, Principal Investigator of the Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter Camera (LROC) says the most often-asked questions he gets about the images LRO has taken of the Moon are about pictures of the Apollo landing sites and what is visible. Especially, Robinson said, people want to know if the flags are still standing.

Previously, Robinson has said that while the flag poles are likely still standing, he didn’t think the flags themselves survived the harsh radiation of the lunar surface environment. But new images and video show that at some of the landing sites – Apollo 12, Apollo 16, and Apollo 17 – the flags must still be intact, because they are creating shadows on the surface.

“Personally I was a bit surprised that the flags survived the harsh ultraviolet light and temperatures of the lunar surface, but they did,” Robinson wrote on the LROC website. “What they look like is another question (badly faded?).”

James Fincannon, a NASA engineer from Glenn Research Center, combined LROC images of each Apollo site taken at roughly the same orientation but with different Sun angles to show the travel of shadows.

The most common questions to the LROC team before launch concerned what will we see at the Apollo sites?
Will we see the Lunar Module descent stage and rovers? What about rover tracks, the American flags? As we now know the LROC
NAC images clearly show all of the above items. From the LROC images it is now certain that the American flags are still standing
and casting shadows at all the sites, except for Tranquility Base, the Apollo 11 landing site.



“Combined with knowledge of the Apollo site maps which show where the flag was erected relative to the Lander, long shadows cast by the flags at the three sites show that the these flags are still “flying”, held aloft by the poles,” Fincannon wrote.

And so, from the LROC images it is now certain that the American flags are still standing and casting shadows at all of the sites, except Apollo 11. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin reported that the flag was blown over by the exhaust from the ascent engine during liftoff of Apollo 11, and Robinson said that from the images of the Apollo 11 landing site, it looks like he was correct.

the craters are some of the thousands that remain from nuke testing.

That's it then for moon hoaxers. A couple of blurry pixels in a photo should be proof for even the greatest skeptic. Cheer

Except that what that orbiter has imaged matches exactly to images
taken by probes of several other countries.

Try again.

Yup. I'm convinced.
Richard Hoagland sees ancient civilizations in less than that. Also,
that's pretty damned good for what's being imaged. The descent stage
nearby is quite clear and easy to make out.

What would you say that tiny object, that's casting a shadow in the exact
location of where the flag should be in relation to the descent stage, is
then.

all dishonest governments using the same images is hardly surprising, or difficult to deduce.

Except for all those different angles and altitudes. Your perfect
conspiracy now involves tens of thousands keeping perfectly silent
in at least a half dozen nations if not more.

For the America that was...you know. Pre-socialism when America had
a few thousand mexicans. Not 40 million. When America had a Christian president...not a muslim.When the president sought to defend our country...not to destroy it. When American cars were bought instead of all foreign. When the music was about love and not killing cops.

Back when we were proud to be an American.

How the mighty have fallen....

You would think they would do a more convincing job after having over 40 years to Photoshop a better picture.
