|There's a flag, man. Look closer.|
UC Santa Barbara librarian Annie Platoff is looking for the six flags that were planted on the various space missions to the moon. So far she has found four of the flags, all weathered and beaten due to exposure to the elements. [Time]
This is outrageous! Those flags have been up there nearly 60 years, beaten and neglected, never put at half mast, exposed to sun damage, micro meteor impacts, moon rain and who knows what else! We gotta go get those boys out of there! The flagmanity! How can we ever celebrate Flag Day again while these six brave soldiers wave ever more spreading the message that "'Merica Wuz Here!"
Plus, I hear there's giant transmorphing robots up there and we gotta check that out.
