Econintersect: Whatever happened to the wilderness ethic pioneered by Guy and Laura Waterman and others: "Leave no Trace!" The sharpest ever moon images captured in August (see below break) clearly show pathways made by the astronauts, lunar buggy tracks and garbage identified as the backpacks and other equipment left behind when the lunar landers departed from the moon to return to the space ships for the trips back to earth.
Follow up:The photos were taken at a height of 13 to 15 miles above the moon's surface. As amazing as the images are, the resolution was not sufficient to show individual boot prints.
The images below are from the NASA.gov website, where several other imges are also displayed.
