How long will the footprints on the moon last?

I always see the pictures of them, and theyโ€™ve become a symbol of humankindโ€™s greatest accomplishment...but are they as temporary as footprints on Earth? Did they deteriorate soon after the astronauts left?

Best Answer

The footprints on the moon will likely be there for as long as the moon is. Unlike Earth, there’s no liquid water, no volcanic activity, and no weather to speak of on the moon, so aside from the occasional meteorite and solar wind (which takes ages to have an effect), there’s nothing on the moon to mess with the footprints. They’re still there—along with spacecraft, scientific equipment, mementos, bags of human waste, and a lot more.

It will stay as long as the earth and moon lives, One day the moon with earth will be destroyed. So it will last for a long time until the moon and earth gets destroyed (NOT a joke ๐Ÿ˜’)

It WiLl sTaY ThErE fOrEvEr! Because on the moon, there's no water, no wind, no disturbances. The only way is if someone decides to fly to the moon and brush off the footprints that will be replaced by their handprints or something else.

No definite answer to say. But space is a vacuum that has no friction and disturbances unless collision occurs. Indefinitely forever. Unless if something like comet or asteroid was to impact the moon creating a new crater or something, which is not something impossible, as evidenced from the numbers of craters observed on the moon, these things happen every so often and frequently.

a million years

An astronaut's footprint can last a million years on the surface of the moon. It may have been decades since we last set foot on the moon, but its surface is still marked with the historic footprints of the 12 astronauts who stomped across it. That's because the moon has no atmosphere.

The first footprints put on the moon will probably be there a long, long time โ€” maybe almost as long as the moon itself lasts.

Unlike on Earth, there is no erosion by wind or water on the moon because it has no atmosphere and all the water on the surface is frozen as ice. Also, there is no volcanic activity on the moon to change the lunar surface features. Nothing gets washed away, and nothing gets folded back inside.

However, the Moon is exposed to bombardment by meteorites, which change the surface. One little spacerock could easily wipe out a footprint on the moon. And since the Moon has no atmosphere, it is exposed to the solar wind, a stream of charged particles coming from the sun, and over time this acts almost like weather on Earth to scour surfaces on the moon, but the process is very, very slow.
