Fact of the Day: Long Lasting Footprints


As long as no further space explorers step in the same spot, the footprints our astronauts left will remain on the moon for at least 10 million years. The moon has no wind, weather, or erosion so there's nothing out there to mess with them.

Wow that's crazy to think about. It's hard to imagine some dirt/dust never moving or eroding due to weather.

I really hope we find extraterrestrial life one day, I run my computer 24/7 processing work units for a distributed computing project designed to scan radio signals collected from the worlds largest satellite. Cool stuff :)

Amazing, didn't know about this. The next astronaut that goes to the moon needs to draw something epic.
