Weird Stuff

Shouldn't the flag collapse if there is no wind?

While I am not convinced about the landing on the moon, you must remember that the gravity is not the same as on Earth.

It's about 1/6 of that on Earth. Still it is enough to pull the flag down (it is enough to keep the astronaut down). BTW, that's from an upcoming Wolfenstein title which looks interesting.

It has a horizontal pole going through the top.

This is part of the so called Moon Hoax..

In 2008 Mythbusters proved that when there is less gravity and no wind the flag still flaps.. and also some other things.

Sorry for the low quality video link.. it's all that I could find.

You know? I am glad I posted this. Although I was referring specifically to the Nazi flag in the Wolfenstein trailer, after seeing the video you posted I noticed that a lot of people had made the same question about the actual moon landing done by the US. Note though, that I wasn't questioning the veracity of the US moon landing, which, come to think of it, also involves a waving flag. However, Mercykiller's response pretty answers my question.
