Transcript: Jack Kinzler’s Flag Pole | Destination Moon [VIDEO]

Andy Masich, President and CEO, Heinz History Center:

One of the most interesting things in this part of the exhibit is the American flag, done by a Pittsburgher named Jack Kinzler.

He came up with an idea for a telescoping, aluminum pole with a cantilevered arm on it that would make the American flag stand up straight, because there’s no wind on the Moon.
