This is silly, we've been to the moon, and have the rocks to prove it. A while back a physics teacher explained that "fluttering" flag to our
class. When the astronauts placed the flag on the moon, it would have been humanly impossible to do so without starting the flag into motion. As there
is no air on the moon, the only thing to slow that motion is friction at the points the flag is mounted. The flag wasn't blowing in the wind, it just
hadn't stopped moving yet from the time it was planted. The ice at the poles hasn't been proven yet (at least as far as I know). If there is ice it
is simply the small amounts at the bottoms of craters that never receive sunlight.
