Why does the moon have so many craters formed by meteoroids?

The moon has no atmosphere therefore meteoroids do not burnt or fragment, prior to hitting the moons surface. On Earth meteor craters quickly become disguised as weather erosion and foliage camouflage the site of impact. The lack of atmosphere on the moon means that once the impact crater has been made the evidence of it never disappears over time. Recently the use of powerful telescopes has shown that the tracks of the lunar lander and even the footprints of astronauts from the 1970's are still visible on the moons surface.

How did the astronauts not float into space when they walked in the moon?
