Moon Hoax?


Mythbusters is doing a NASA-themed episode tonight. It’s all about the the conspiracy theory that the moon landings were a hoax. According to what I’ve read online, some of the specifics are looking at how the American flag appears to blow in the wind, yet there’s no wind on the moon, and whether or not a footprint can be made in dry regolith.

Those mythbusters folks are pretty thorough so this should be interesting. I actually won’t be home in time to watch it live, but I programmed the DVR two days ago to record it, so I plan to watch as soon as I get home.

A few months ago my co-worker David actually flew in the same microgravity airplane as the main guys (Adam and Jamie) while they were filming for the moon episode. This is actually a picture David took with his iPhone during the flight.
