Squares?[edit]

The article states: "Lunar plaques are square stainless steel plaques (9" x 7 5/8")..." I don't want to appear pedantic, but how can a square have different legth sides? A square whose sides are of different length are RECTANGLES. Unless anybody has a sound explanation to why the term "square" is correct, I urge that this fault be rectified.

I think they said square because it is stretched on a curve body. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 151.51.225.117 (talk) 19:35, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
