Note that they are saying there was no wind, and then look at the end of the footage of them sticking in the flag, how can the flag show up like it did in the footage without an astronaut holding it?

look at around 3:00.

***** derp. I love it when laymen pretend to know ***** about *****.
Dont tell me that you are that blind, they even say there is no wind on the moon.
There is no wind. The flag is almost completely still until the astronaut begins moving with it.
i am talking about the end scene, were the flag is in a waving position without someone holding the flag, how can that be if there is no wind?
Inertia.
what?

The flag is stretched out because there's a pole on the upper rim holding it up.
The reason it continues to wave even after the astronaut has released it is because the moon has no atmosphere, it's all vacuum. That means that there are no particles the fabric of the flag can collide with to slow the movement down. It probably continues to slowly move until the low gravity of the moon has forced it to remain perpendicular.
shouldnt the gravity had to pull it down or up since now it looks like it was planted on earth.

Yes, the gravity of the moon pulls the bottom of the flag down, and is the cause that I think will eventualy make the flag stop waving. But since it's only 1/8 of the gravity of the earth (IIRC) it takes some time.

Ya know.., I believe in a lot of the conspiracy theories. Some lead to war, have social, political, or health implications, and sometimes the answer behind them is just plain greed with not much else. But not every conspiracy theory is true. Sometimes people get a little wrapped up in looking for them because they find that a lot of them are true.
I had a friend who started telling me about the illuminati and other theories back in the 90's, but as soon as he got to this one I looked at him like he was nuts. We would've had more talks and I would have become more awake sooner if this one had not come up. I think people should stick to the ones that are a little more believable than this one. A lot of bad people can make a lot of bad things happen. A lot of good people can make a lot of good things happen. Sometimes... things just happen. Not everything is a conspiracy. When people bring this one up, I start to think they are going off the deep end without their little rubber ducky flotation device.
Mythbusters covered this.



I am not talking about vacuum, but rather the gravity having a different affect then it would have had if it was planted on earth, with wind. My way of think is that, because there is gravity on the moon, and no wind could have had effect on the flag, how come its not pointing down?

Are you wondering why the flag doesn't collapse down and just stays perfectly sticking out?

They had an attachment rod on the flag pole which went through the top of the flag, that's why the flag never collapses down.

But wouldn't by the way you illustrate it also make the attachment go down, together with the flag? IMO the way the attachement is place it would not matter, it would still go down together with the flag.

Did you watch the myth busters video? Look at the flag used.
Yes I have watched it, but I am purely talking about gravity, because sinds there is no wind to keep the flag waving straight up, it should go down, sure it waves in a vacuum, but since there is no wind to let the flag Continue to wave, it should go down, I hope it makes sense.
Alright, I just watched a video on this whole moon landing conspiracy. I never really gave this one any thought because I figured it was not really that important and does not affect my life directly. But, I am intrigued by it now and have a greater question to this whole thing.

WHY???

Why would the elite or the US government or whoever do this?
