Description: What did Hubble really discover? Why does redshift imply an expanding universe? Why is the night sky dark? Why is there so much hydrogen, and how is that connected to the Big Bang? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!

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.

Bio: Paul Sutter received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow. He then spent three years as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Next-Generation Cosmic Probes at the Paris Institute of Astrophysics, and is currently an INFN Fellow in Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy, and a Visiting Scholar at the Ohio State University’s Center for Cosmology and Astro-Particle Physics. He is inexplicably drawn to positions with very long titles.
