This motion causes the flag to appear rippling. Dr. Phillips also says, “Unfurling a piece of rolled-up cloth with stored angular momentum will naturally result in waves and ripples.” Many of the photos taken are from the moon itself. Many of the theories can be refuted by simple common sense as well as technological knowledge of photo equipment. Factors such as light, aperture, reflections affect all photos from the moon. Not only did NASA bring back photos from the moon, but also an abundance of rock samples.
A 1999 Gallup poll showed that 6% of Americans have doubts about the moon landing. Even though 6% of Americans doesn't sound like a lot, it translates to millions of people (Plait). It would have been easier to fake all the photographs in the Nevada desert in Area 51 than to actually perform the mission to the moon. However, NASA did indeed have the technology in the late 1960's to send men to the moon, and all the evidence they brought back proves it. On July 16, 1969 the space ship Apollo 11 left from Kennedy Space Center en route to the moon.
Taryn Harris #10567 and Claire Werner #10230 Mr. C Science 8, Period 6 21 April 2014 The Wonders of Space Rocks In our solar system, there are a vast variety of space rocks. Space contains comets, asteroids, and meteors that rush through space, but don’t make it to Earth because they burn up along the way. This is due to the amount of friction that is produced on its journey through space. Comets, asteroids, and meteors are only a few objects that orbit through space and in our solar system. As a result, these various space rocks fly throughout our solar system, creating a bunch of chemistry.
Scientists have studied the Moon to try to give it an approximate age. The youngest moon rock which scientists have studied was radioactive dated as 3.16 billion years old, while the oldest dated rocks were dated 4.6 billion years old, which also indicates that the Moon is the same age as the presumed aged of Earth (Gallant 117). If the Moon were to be colonized, there are two main components needed to sustain human life, not only on the Moon, but everywhere. These two important needs are water and oxygen. Without water and oxygen, life will cease to exist.
The next theory also has to do with the air on the moon. Another claim that has been made is that Neil Armstrong's foot print would not be distinguishable.

Mars is just the second “giant leap” in our knowledge of the universe. Who knows what discoveries will be found on our research of other planets? To give up on space exploration due to financial restraints is like giving up on science in general.
The moon has many secrets and LCROSS will aid NASA in uncovering, discovering, and decoding theses secrets. Data from other LCROSS instruments are being analyzed for additional information about the materials at the impact sight. The permanently shadowed regents of the moon are cold traps that collect and preserve material over billions of years. The full understanding of the data that LCROSS collected will take a long time to interpret. This article interested me because I was shocked it took billions of years for NASA to figure out there is water on the moon.
They know a lot about the moon, but there is still much more to learn. ?The Eagle has landed.? Many people use this phrase without knowing where it came from. On July 20, 1969, NASA astonished the world, when Neil Armstrong spoke these words when the Apollo spacecraft, nicknamed ?the Eagle,? landed on the moon?s surface.
They could be tested for things such as evidence of fossilised organisms. Another, possibly slightly far-fetched hope is that we may find simple organisms like bacteria actually living on the desired planet.

Outer space according to Dictionary.com is defined as "the physical universe outside of the earths atmosphere". Over the entire existence of mankind we have always wondered what is out there. The moon is one object that many people have always fathomed about. The moon is fathomed about in 3 aspects. These aspects include facts including theories the formation of the moon, the great space race, and wether or not the first moon landing was a hoax.
