For years, scientists and space buffs have wondered what happened to the six American flags planted on the moon during the historic Apollo missions. And now we know. All the flags but one are still standing. The exception is the flag for Apollo 11, the historic first human moon landing in 1969, This is unbelievable! The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has spotted the actual flags flying!

If you’re wondering what happened to the 6th flag -the lack of an Apollo 11 flag is consistent with astronaut Buzz Aldrin‘s memory of the famous mission. Aldrin said the flag blew over from the rocket blast when astronauts left the surface.

Wow. Just Wow.
