- New Apollo 17 Landing Photo Clearly Shows Lander, Flag [Moon Landing]
Shared by Digittante
Moon-landing Conspiracy Theorists can take the weekend off. New moon photos confirm existence of a derelict flagpole and man made spacecraft abandoned on moon's surface >>>
It's blurrier than old MySpace snapshots, but it's there as expected. The Apollo Lunar Modules and the US flag left behind at the Apollo 17 landing site has been caught in a close-up image by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.
The lander as well as the flag, or rather the remaining flag pole, seen in the image above are exactly where they should be based on this shot by the Ascent Module "right after Apollo 17 lifted off the Moon":
Going a step further, the location can be compared to more recent images of the landing site and everything still jives up. So, can we now finally quiet down with the moon landing conspiracies and focus on figuring out how to colonize the tubes up there? Pretty please? [SESE via Discover]
