Footprints will last, possibly, millions of years. There is no air or liquid water on the moon which, on Earth, are the devices of change by erosion. So unless footprints on the moon are disturbed by meteorite impacts, they will remain as the are for millenia.
There is no erosion on the moon surface because there is no wind or water to flow over the landscape. So, the footprints have nothing to disturb them and will remain as long as the moon remains.
Well it probably depends on the space boots are heavy, but about millions of years.
Until something disturbs it, like a future meteor impact, or a future moon landing. The footprints left by the astronauts may last millions of years.
Ten Million Years
There is no wind, and barely any gravity so the footprints will stay on the moon for yyyyyeeeeaaaarrrrrrsssss.
There were recent amazing pictures released to the press of the surface of the moon which showed many of the objects left on the moon including footprints! So you know the footprints last over 40 years because it has been that long since Neil Armstrong made history with the first footprints on the moon. There is no atmosphere on the moon therefore no rain, wind or water flow so the only thing that will destroy the footprints is space debri of either man made materials or rocks such as a meteor storm. Scientist from different nationsintentionally crash objects into the moon for various studies.
Because there's no gravity or wind.
The footprints will stay on the moon because there is no weather or atmosphere on the moon! That means that if there is no weather there will be no wind to carry it away or sand to top over the footprints!
Because there is no wind on the moon to blow it around.
As long as no one touches or disturbs them, footprints on the Moon will look the same, and will remain unchanged forever. On the moon, there is no wind that would cover the footprints, and there is no water or rain that would wash the footprints away.
The Moon has no wind, no water, and almost no moon quakes (earthquakes on the moon). There is almost nothing to cause the footprints to go away. Unless they are hit by a meteor, comet, or asteroid.
there are not footprints on the moon the ground is very solid
There is gravity on the moon, it is just weaker than it is on Earth. There is fine sand on the moon. if you step on it, of course there would be footprints.
Footprints in the moons surface (so in the dust lying on the moon) will never go away because there is no wind on the moon to blow new dust over the footprints.
No. there are no telescopes (not even the orbiting Hubble or even the next generation of orbiting telescopes) that have long enough focal length or high enough resolution to resolve footprints on the Moon.
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.
Because the moon has no atmosphere there is no wind or rain to erode the footprints.
because there is no erosion on the moon because it does not rain
If there is no air movement, then the footprints should still be there!
They'll be there as long as the moon is. Space is a vacuum, there's nothing there to disturb them.
I recall during the moon walks that the footprints were expected to survive for thousands of years; so yes.
NO there isn`t
Oh yes the footprints left on the moon by the astronauts , will remain there for years or centuries. The reason is that there is no wind on the moon surface. So there is no chance of dust covering those footprints.
Yes, since the Moon has no erosion.
