Weird Things Left On The Moon

Mankind has left far more things on the moon's surface than footprints. Some of the items still resting on the moon include more than 70 spacecraft, backpacks, TV cameras, two golf balls, 12 pairs of boots, a golden olive branch replica, and a ton of trash (human waste, used wet wipes, empty food packages, and more).
