Answers to MOON STEPS
1. Using footprints it could be possible to calculate the astronautsí leg length (hip height), body length (height), speed, and mass (weight). (These estimates would be dependent on whether the visitors had any experience with bipeds)
2. adjust formula to find the unknown stride: stride = [speed = ((0.25g0.5) (hip-1.17))]0.599 (the inverse of X1.67 is X0.599) stride = 2.4 meters
3. For any speed above zero, the stride distance on the Earth will be less than that on the Moon.
4. Answers will vary depending on individual stride measurements.
