Mark Robinson, an investigator with the Funar Reconnaissce Oribiter Camera (LROC), said: "From the LROC it is now certain that the American flags are still standing and casting shadows at all of the sites, except Apollo 11.
The flags may not have retained their vibrant red, white and blue colours though. Exposure to heat, cold and light may have caused them to fade, Dr Robinson added.
Well there you have it. I doubt that the "hoaxers" will believe a word of it but then they are a bunch of arseholes
