The Moon flag still stands

Sceptics might argue that NASA spent the 60’s and 70’s playing dart on an epic scale and that’s how the US flag ended up on the Moon. Reality would be better if they were right. But they’re not.

According to this article on the BBC, the flag left by astronauts during the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon’s surface is still right where they put it in the first place.

Sceptics can take a bit of strength form the fact that it was a NASA satellite that flew past the original landing site for man’s first mission to the Moon and saw the flag was still standing.
