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.
Yes they will remain for centuries.
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.
The last astronauts to walk on the moon were Apollo 17. On 19/12/1972.
The last manned moon mission was the Apollo 17 , with astronauts Eugene Cernan, harrison Schmitt to walk on the moon.
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.
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.
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.
Nothing what so ever happened to the Apollo 18 astronauts. The reason being there never ever was a Apollo 18 moon mission. Apollo 17 was the last moon mission launchedby N.A.S.A.
Apollo 17 was the last moon mission , astronauts were Eugene cernan and harrison Schmitt.
Yes; in 1975 the last Apollo mission was a join mission with a Soviet Soyuz
Well it probably depends on the space boots are heavy, but about millions of years.
The Apollo 17 was the last Apollo Moon mission
Apollo 17 was the last manned moon mission. It was launched December 7, 1972 and splashed down back here on Earth December 19, 1972.
The last mission was the Apollo 17 also the eleventh Apollo mission and sixth and last lunar landing.
Apollo 17 landed on the moon on December 11, 1972, and departed on the 14th. The astronauts on Apollo 17 were Eugene A. Cernan, Harrison Schmitt, and Ronald E. Evans (Command Module pilot). Gene Cernan was the last man to walk on the moon.
The Apollo 17 was the last Apollo Moon mission, as the Missions 18-21 were cancled.
Apollo 17 was the last apollo rocket to go to space because it was to much money.
cause they just do
The first moon landing by Apollo 11 was on July 20, 1969. The final moon landing by Apollo 17 was on December 11, 1972. The Apollo 17 Lunar Module departed the Moon on December 15, 1972, and no human has set foot on the Moon since.
7 of the 12 Apollo Astronauts who walked on the Moon were Naval Aviators, as were the largest percentage of those Astronauts involved in the Apollo program itself. This was due in large part to the ocean-based recoveries of the Command Module by the Navy.Neil Armstrong (Apollo 11) - Naval Aviator, though he was a NASA Astronaut and not an active duty Navy pilot at the time, unlike the other Astronauts who were active duty Navy when they went to the Moon.Pete Conrad / Alan Bean (Apollo 12)Alan Shepard / Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14)John W. Young (Apollo 16)Eugene Cernan (Apollo 17)Of this list, all but Eugene Cernan (also known as "the Last Man on the Moon") were also Test Pilots. Cernan was a Fighter Pilot.
Because they didn't go anywhere!!!The last flight, Apollo 10 was a "dry run" for Apollo 11Apollo missions 1 to 10 never landed on the moon.Apollo 1 ended in a fatal accident that killed three astronauts.Apollo 2 to 6 were unmanned orbital test flights of the Saturn rocket and Apollo modules.Apollo 7 and 9 were manned flights in Earth's orbitApollo 8 and 10 were manned missions that orbited the moon but did not land there.
US astronauts Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, as part of the Apollo 17 lunar mission. They were on the Moon from December 11 to December 17, 1972.
The shaking or vibration in the underground rocks of the moon is called a moonquake. Moonquakes were first discovered by the Apollo astronauts and are known to last for as long as an hour.
