The American flags on the moon have all turned white

The American flags on the moon have all turned white



While lunar images have proven that the American flags planted during the Apollo missions are still standing on the moon, lunar scientists have now said that they probably no longer hold the iconic stars and stripes — radiation from the sun most likely bleached out all the colors.

The result? The flags are probably completely white by now.

The flags were made by Annin Flagmakers. They are nylon and cost NASA $5.50 each. Even on the surface of the Earth, under the protection of our atmosphere, flags flown in bright sunlight would fade severely over the decades since the moon landings.

Because the moon doesn't have an atmosphere, and there is no shade, the flags planted by the Apollo astronauts are exposed to bright, constant sunlight with even more radiation.

In an article in the Smithsonian Air & Space magazine, lunar scientist Paul Spudis explains:

Over the course of the Apollo program, our astronauts deployed six American flags on the Moon. For forty-odd years, the flags have been exposed to the full fury of the Moon’s environment – alternating 14 days of searing sunlight and 100° C heat with 14 days of numbing-cold -150° C darkness. But even more damaging is the intense ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the pure unfiltered sunlight on the cloth (modal) from which the Apollo flags were made. Even on Earth, the colors of a cloth flag flown in bright sunlight for many years will eventually fade and need to be replaced. So it is likely that these symbols of American achievement have been rendered blank, bleached white by the UV radiation of unfiltered sunlight on the lunar surface. Some of them may even have begun to physically disintegrate under the intense flux.

America is left with no discernible space program while the Moon above us no longer flies a visible U.S. flag. How ironic.

Well, my thought on this subject is, if our flags on the moon are now white, then we certainly do now have the appropriate flags there. I say that because, if we actually did put them there, then we "surrendered" whatever our Moon Program was, and have never returned. And "a white flag" does mean, "we surrender", and we did!!   :o :o :o >:( >:( >:(

May depend upon ones thoughts or views on it...

I am still neutral...Ive seen various theories and discussions from what seemed like Quite high respected experts...

Did they or did they not land on the Moon ?

If they did then the article may seem valid..

if they didn't.. then is it just a theory as to what they believe would happen to the flag or is any sort of Scientific expectation .. or is it just wrote to mislead us ?

Some of what it described I dont think that I had really considered before...such as just how hot / cold the moon gets and how many day or Nights it is in light or darkness

It may seem plausible..in terms of what is suggested..and the theory could well be correct ..also based upon what the materials of the Flag is made of...(For those who are aware of the effects acting on the material involved)

Or my feeling Both. They didn't and then they did.

Guess they should have left our mark by making a crop circle or something with rocks. 8)

Maybe I should have been more specific..

and said Did the Apollo programs were were led to believe in Land on the Moon and place the Flags there...that were in such photos.?

Even some experts who suggest they did not get to the moon due to the Van Allen radiation belt....Some have also suggested we have bases on the Moon...Some also say that was thru the Secret Space Programs...Others say thru or via ET craft..
