The American Flag, planted on our dearest satellite on Jule 1969, no longer stands. It lays down. Flat. On it’s side. Applause… There’s gravity on the Moon ! (and justice — isn’t the Moon *intergalactic* property ?)

This is what Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin, former astronaut and first man on the Moon mentioned during one of his last speeches in Delft, Holland.

Good ol’ Ed also debunked another urban legend: it is *not* possible to see the Chinese Wall, for instance. Clouds and other Earth’s surface details would prevent this…

The American ‘Stars and Stripes’ flag, planted by Armstrong and Aldrin, only stood for a very short while. “The Americans like to think their flag is still present. The real story is that we accidentally knocked her over upon our departure. We kind of decided not to tell anyone, knowing how sensitive this is for the Americans.” Aldrin stated.

    i recon the gravity pull will either go upwards or downwards because the gravity of the moon or there is 2 wires being held on the flags corners
