Description:  The Moon does not have an atmosphere today. But did it about 3.5 billion years ago? Dr. Debra Hurwitz Needham with NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center will discuss her findings in a brand new study that suggests the Moon once had an atmosphere more dense than the current atmosphere of Mars.

We are once again asking for your input through a series of three surveys, each of which is targeting a specific aspect of CosmoQuest and what we do:
The first is our *Podcast Listeners Survey*. If you listen to podcasts, you are invited to provide your honest and anonymous feedback here:
Next is our *Teaching with Citizen Science Survey*. If you are a teacher – formal or informal – you are invited to complete this survey to provide feedback about using Citizen Science materials while teaching:
Finally is our *Citizen Science Survey*. I know there are a lot of Crew who actively participate in Citizen Science projects, so we would be very grateful if you would complete this survey for us!
The more feedback we get, the better CosmoQuest will be. Remember, all responses are anonymous.
