From memory they are cramming in the population and will be on target to have the most dense coverage of the country (if that makes sense) and there not in the top 5 size wise

There are currently 6 USA flags that have been placed on our moon, one for each visit.
An additional flag was left by one of the missions. What is on the flag?

A michigan university flag, although the astronauts themselves cast doubt on this.

Probably so they don't get raked over the coals by NASA.
My understanding was that in one of the missions all the astronauts where from that Uni and they put the flag on there own accord as a tribute.

Now for the next question.

A Kamakazi is known popularly as suicidal pilots who crashed their planes into US naval vessels.

These pilots were named after something though.

What does Kamakazi mean, and why was this name important to Japanese?

Aargh,Keep the Japanese questions coming T74!

My wife speeks Japanese...So this answer comes from MrsDave

Kamikaze means wind & has something to do with the Japanese withstanding Mongolian invasions in the 13th century!

Spot on! It means "Divine Wind", and was the name given to a serious of typhoons, sent by God to protect Japan, which destroyed the Mongol invasion fleet of Kublai (?) Khan as it was coming to Japan. in WWII, given they were sacrificing their lives to defend against the upcoming US retaliation, the name was bestowed on the suicide bombers.

Over to you TD :)
