For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

New analysis of Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter images appears to prove that most of the American flags planted at the Apollo landing sites are still standing.

Sadly, the analysis also seems to prove what Buzz Aldrin reported, that the Apollo 11 American flag was blown over by the exhaust from the ascent stage when the astronauts took off.

I wonder if anyone from the United States will ever have a chance to pick it up?

    Watching us dimantal the bulk of our aerospace industry over the last couple decades – and the enthusiasm among space supporters over terminating all the US Maned space capacity, its easy to think no. But history shows we cycle to these kinds of lows about this time in history. Were at the extreme end of a cultural/political cycle and its trashing a lot, but cycles eb – and I can’t see us perminently giving up space and areospace to others.
