Why do the footprints on the moon look the same every time?

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.


How can there be footprints on the moon with no gravity?

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.


If a astronaut landed on the moon how long would the footprints stay there and why?

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.

How long will an astronauts footprints remain on the moon's surface?

There is no air on the Moon, so there is no wind to erase the footprints. However, they would eventually either be covered in dust thrown up by nearby meteor impacts, or obliterated if a meteor were to hit nearby.


How did Neil Armstrong's footprints stay on the moon so long?

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.


Why will the footprints left on the moon by Apollo astronauts last forever?

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.


Why there are footprints on moon?

Why would footprints on the moon last for hundreds of years?

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!


Are footprints on the moon possible?

Yes


Footprints on the moon will never go away?

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.


Can telescopes see footprints on the moon?

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.


Why would footprints on the moon last there for hundreds of years?

Because there's no gravity or wind.


Why are the footprints of astronauts who walked on the moon in 1969 are still there today?

Because the moon has no atmosphere there is no wind or rain to erode the footprints.


Why are there still footprints on the moon?

The lack of atmosphere means there is no wind, or rain, etc. to either erode or wash away the footprints. The only way for the footprints to be disturbed would be from an impact event, such as a meteor striking the moon's surface near the prints and disturbing the surface.


Was there really ever a moon landing?

Of course there was moon landings, there were 12 astronauts, you can see their footprints, and there are six lunar modules and flags on the moon, for doubting idiots to be convinced.


How have the footprints of neil Armstrong on the moon when there is no air on it?

If there is no air movement, then the footprints should still be there!


How long will footprints last on the moon and why?

In 7,000 years


How long will astronauts footprints on the moons surface remain for?

They'll be there as long as the moon is. Space is a vacuum, there's nothing there to disturb them.


Are the astronauts footprints still on the moon?

I recall during the moon walks that the footprints were expected to survive for thousands of years; so yes.

Well it probably depends on the space boots are heavy, but about millions of years.
