And they drop right back down pretty much where they stirred from.

Ever worked in a machine shop that had banks of Negative Ion Generators
in the ceiling for dust control?

Like that.

Ps. Didn't the LE module use the smaller outrigger thrusters to land? I
don't think the main engine was operational as it approached the surface
b/c minimal gravity so it's not like the thing needed massive energy to
keep from a hard touchdown.
