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.
