[quote:nomuse (NLI) 641106:MV83NTU2ODNfMTE2MDI4MDlfRDA3N0YxRTI=] [quote:Anonymous Coward 548848] It's statistically improbable that several successive landings and re-dockings of the lunar module could be made without mishap What? How many dockings of the ISS have been made? Many more than were done between Apollo LMs and CMs, and there has been what, one(?) mishap. It isn't the same really. The LM landed on another planet, took off again and then redocked, all without mishap, all those parts working without fatal flaw, no mistakes made by pilots. Seems a bit unlikely. [/quote] Lot of weasel words there. There were no FATALITIES in any of the number Apollo launches (Apollo 1 was named posthumously for the crew). But that is far from saying each landing was flawless. If your car worked as flawlessly as Apollo 11 (largest among the problems, a computer error that forced a manual landing, as well as an overflight, as well as a broken breaker switch that could have marooned them on the Moon if not repaired), or Apollo 14, (difficulty engaging the docking collar)...and, well, so on and so on, you'd be taking that car to a mechanic. What the program did, is due to robust design, numerous back-up systems, long training, and a very skilled crew and support staff, is surmount thousands of flight problems and bring the spacecraft home safely.

How could an Astronaut make a deeper print on the Moon than the lv?Secondly you need moisture in the soil to leave a footprint .Try making a footprint in soil that has no moisture,it is impossible.
