    Is this supposed to be a crowd-sourced alternate history timeline or something?

    In the first image the sickle and hammer are on the far side from the pole, but on the second image it's towards the pole. I CALL HOAX!

    And how's the flag waving when there's no air on the moon? And where are the stars?!?

    Good eyes.
    The actual reason is poor quality control.
    The individual responsible for assembling the flag to the staff prior to launch has been reassigned for remedial training.

    Two different landings, no standardization.

    I got the following from another forum discussing the same topic:

    Let me ammend that with:

    Ten years later...
    USSR: We have first man on Mars.
    USA: Yea, you do. Pity that he won't make it back, but that is not what we are racing for.
    USSR: WELL WHAT IS IT THIS TIME?!
    USA: Alpha Centauri.

    No, it's cause they did a bad job with the hoax. Just like the Windows desktop hoax!

    No stars!

    Why do not we get straight to the point?

    Americans did not land on the Moon. Everyone knows it was filmed by Stanley Kubrick :mischief:.
