Mythbusters to tackle moon landing Answered

Picture of

Did we really land on the moon? The Mythbusters have run some tests to find out for a future show. Sounds like it'll be awesome and I'll need to find a friend's place to watch it.

So can a flag wave in a vacuum? Catch when the show airs to find out.

I don't see how anyone capable of truly believing that the moon landing was a hoax is likely to be convinced by any demonstrations from a TV show. I mean, part of the theory is that film and VT effects are so good (and were in 1969, too) that you can't believe anything you see... (Of course, I don't understand how anyone can truly believe it was a hoax; I think it's just something misanthropic rednecks claim to believe so they can annoy "college boy know-it-alls.")

I wonder what they'll blow up?

ok the flag will not wave but it will not disinigrate and turn all moldy because it can make no germs enter the premisise

But there is a stick holding the flag up. It doesn't wave.

Oh, could someone make note of it when it airs? I always miss such things because of my dumb work hours....

Tonight is the "Trail blazing" repeat. Smash Lab's a repeat too, I love and hate seeing how biased their "experiments" are.

Is that the one with the "burning gunpowder up to the keg explodes" one? (of course, I remember the "bra shorting out the defibrillator" portion of the episode too). That was on again later in the night (like, 1 am my time).

I would too. I've seen lots of conspiracy theories about it and all are pretty laughable. I still want to see how they pull off the experiments, though.
