American Flags Are Still Flying On The Moon
For years, scientists and space buffs have wondered what happened to the six American flags planted on the moon during the historic Apollo missions. And now we know. All the flags but one are still standing. The exception is the flag for Apollo 11, the historic first human moon landing in 1969, This is unbelievable! The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has spotted the actual flags flying!

Wow. Just Wow. 50 years ago this week, the world was enthralled. And I guess we still are...
