Apollo Moon Missions

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.

What is the movement of organisms from one place to another?

Lentiviruses are very efficient at delivering genetic materials to both dividing and non-dividing cells. According to whether proviral DNA is formed in transduced cells, lentiviruses can be further divided into two groups: integrating lentivirus (ILV) and integrase-deficient lentivirus (IDLV). ILV is first developed and applied in scientific research and IDLV is constructed later through genetic modification.

6. Distance From Water - How close the area is to and ocean or lake (any body of water)

These are the main most important 6.
latitude, prevailing winds, mountains, large bodies of water, and ocean currents.

What does under the poverty line mean?

The "poverty line" is a point where an individual's income just meets the minimum necessary for basic survival in a society.

Firstly, there are two type of poverty: absolute poverty(also known as destitution) is where an individual is unable to meet basic human survival needs - they are unable to get enough food, water, clothing, and shelter to continue to live, and will die relatively shortly after reaching the absolute poverty level; relative poverty (also known as being poor) where the individual's standard of living is considerably below the mean (generally, at least 50% below mean income level). Those in relative poverty are not in any immediate danger of death, but suffer from significant issues with malnutrition, health, substandard clothing and housing, and an almost complete lack of any luxury goods, as compared to a "typical" member of that society.

In most contexts, the poverty line is the income level where an individual (or family) enters relative poverty. For instance, 2010 mean US household income is about $50,000. The poverty limit for a family of four was a household income of $22,000, or about 44% of the mean household income.

Thus, living under the poverty line means that the individual/family is definitely poor, and cannot afford much more than the very basics of life.

In the United States, the phrase "under the poverty line" has a specific meaning in the context of government documents. It refers to the "absolute poverty line": the income threshold below which families or individuals are considered to be lacking the resources to meet the basic needs for healthy living; having insufficient income to provide the food, shelter and clothing needed to preserve health.
