Debunking the Conspiracy Theorists
Why do flags flutter in Apollo pictures / films if there is no atmosphere on
Of course a flag can wave in a vacuum!
The flags were mounted on one side of a vertical pole and had a horizontal bar
attached to the top of the flag so that it would stand out from the vertical pole.
In a vacuum or not, when you move the vertical pole, the flag will wave since it is
attached at the top.
It isn’t air that is moving the flag, it is the cloth itself that is moving.
