      There is no wind or water to wash them away, so they will stay as they are for a very long time. If a meteorite hit the area they would get destroyed, but otherwise they are more or less safe.

      There’s no atmosphere, no volcanoes, no moving water and no erosion to move the lunar dust so it stays in the shape of the footprints.
