We can't be absolutely sure how long a footprint will last on the moon since it might or might not be struck by a meteoroid or other cosmic debris, but potentially it could last for billions of years. It is also possible (although I am not expecting it) that the moon will someday be colonized by people, who will then disturb the existing footprints. But then again, they might want to preserve them as monuments.
The moon has no atmosphre- how is this important? this simple means that the moon experiences no form of erosion(agents of erosion are fuelled by the atmosphere) which poses a threat to any land mark on earth.
Yes because there are no forces on the moon to erode the foot step. That is that same reason we can leave the Apollo's on the moon.
Of course there are several.
Eugene Cernan and Harrison schmitt were the last men to set foot on the moon
Niel Alden Armstrong was the first man to set foot on the moon. look him up and you'll see some pictures of his foot print still there on the moon.
The last man to set foot on the moon was Eugene Cernan. He did this while a member of the crew of Apollo 17.
The last man on the moon was Gene Cernan on December 18, 1972.
the American flag and his foot print
The first set of foot prints on the moon, were those of Apollo 11 astronauts. And they will be there for years to come, as there is no wind or rain to wipe it out for good.
yes.There is no wind on the moon so things like foot print's wont move!
yes because there is no eroision 12 yr old answered this
The last time humans set foot on the moon was Apollo 17 in December 1972.
The last man to walk on the moon was Harrison Schmitt.
im sorry but no! any sign of alien life has been declined. for now....
Because there is no wind on the moon the dust remains in position unlike earth where wind blows dust and dirt which in turn fills cracks and crevices
No wind, rain, or people to disturb them, just empty space.
the same time it take the moon to change from a new moon to the last quarter
You might mean on the moon. There is no wind or rain to erode the footprint on the moon, that's why it can last up to billions of years.
a very long time, probably forever.
The most durableman-made creaton ever is Buzz Aldrin's foot print on the moon.=It's expected to remain unchanged for hundreds of thousands of years.=
