There is no wind or atmosphere on the moon so the dust that it is made in will not be blown away unless it is hit by a meteor or it is destroyed by humans.

How long will the footprints on the moon last?

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.


How many years has it been since someone walked on the moon?

The last Moon landing was Apollo 17 in December 1972. The full mission took place from December 7th to December 19th, with Eugene Cernan being the last man to leave the surface on December 14th.

There is no atmosphere, so no winds. The footprints could last tens of millions of years if not disturbed. The LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) has taken pics of all the Apollo landing sites, some clearly enough you can see the footpads of the LM and the trails of disturbed dust where the astronauts walked. A total of 12 astronauts walked on the Moon.

Why will the footprints left behind by the Apollo astronauts last for thousands of years?

There's no wind on the moon. There's no outside force to disturb the soil, unless an asteroid or meteor hit that area. In the near-perfect, waterless vacuum of the Moon, there is no wind or water to erode the footprints and tire tracks, only the pull of a gravitational force one-sixth that of the Earth.
