4.51 billion years ago

The Moon formed about 4.51 billion years ago, about 30 to 50 million years after the solar system formed. 1)

Conspiracy theories

There have been many conspiracy theories surrounding the achievement of the American space mission. Many people believed that neither the walk nor the landing on the Moon ever happened. The whole thing was supposed to have been recorded in one of the movie studios in Hollywood. One of the main arguments was an American flag flying because there is no wind on the Moon. NASA tried to fight such opinions and presented counter-arguments. At this point, it is worth noting that in 1969 the Americans had the technology to send a man to the Silver Globe, but not the technology to fake a landing on it. 2)

Six flags on the Moon

A total of six flags were flown on the surface of the Silver Globe, five of which are still standing today. Interestingly, due to solar radiation, the American flags are currently white. During the first historic mission, a flag purchased at a local Sears store for $5.50 was flown. 3)

Piece of the plane

When Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon, he had a piece of the Wright brothers' first plane with him. 4)

Trained in Iceland

The Apollo mission astronauts were trained in Iceland because it was thought that its terrain most closely resembled that of the Moon. 5)
