ISRO already showed pretty definitive imaging of the tracks left by the lunar rover.

Then there are the images returned by the Lunar Reconnaisance Orbiter which show various footpaths left by astronauts who landed.

The problem here is not that there isn't evidence. The problem is that the deniers want to claim that there isn't evidence, and then when presented with evidence, want to deny that it's valid. At some point one starts to think that these people aren't really interested in the truth or in what really happened, but in feeling special and above others by being part of an elite group of the "woke".

It's the same lack of critical thinking that, taken to its extreme, leads to people doing things like denying the holocaust, accusing mass shooting victims of being "crisis actors", shouting about "controlled demolitions" to those of us who watched a plane smash into one of the WTC towers, or shooting up pizza parlors because they believe there's a child sex dungeon in the basement of a restaurant that doesn't even fucking have one: It's easier to believe in some grand conspiracy in order to tell yourself that there's someone, anyone in control rather than admit that sometimes, really bad shit - and sometimes really good shit - can happen that is completely and 100% out of our control. It's a way of feeling powerful in a world rife with powerlessness. It's a sickness, and I used to get angry at people who believe in these things, or deny these things, but as the years tick by it's gradually being replaced by an intense feeling of pity.
