T or F: MICHIGAN flag on the moon?
I bet when you rub one out on the moon you dont even need a sock!
During Orientation in the summer of 1988, our UofM sanctioned guide, who was a grad student at the time, told us group of new students that "There are two flags on the moon.....one is the US flag, the other is the University of Michigan flag" and then went on to say the astronauts were UofM aerospace grads.
Probably no flag.
But here's a tidbit that you can be proud of Michigan for, and that few know:
Raoul Wallenberg, one of the greatest humanitarians of all time, who risked his life in WW2 while a Swedish diplomat to save people from the Nazis, went to Michigan.
That's much better than a flag on the moon.
All these replies, and no one said, "Just ask Zoltan?"
I mean, who's going to tell the Space Emperor of Space that he can't put a Michigan flag on the moon?
Well, there might not be a Michigan flag on the moon, but there sure as hell are two Michigan flags on the Mars rover!
There is no flag. It's been debunked, just campus tour fodder.
The University of Michigan was also behind the funding of the Dharma Initiative, researching animals on a desolate island. Consequently, they were responsible for the crash of Oceanic flight 815.
Technically, funding for the DHARMA Initiative was provided by the Hanso Foundation, a group founded by Michigan graduate Alvar Hanso.
