What is it about craters that help us learn about the moon? How do we use that information today? Why do we want to study the lunar atmosphere? Learn the answer to these questions and more with the next installment of our Science on Saturday lecture series: Lunar Learning!

NASA scientists have never ceased in their study of the Moon. We continue to learn more every day with missions like Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO), Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS), and the soon-to-be-launched Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE), and you can help us too! Join us at the NASA Ames Exploration Center on January 28th at 2:00pm for a lecture and a demonstration about cratering on the Moon.

Brian Day, Education and Public Outreach Lead for LADEE has partnered with German International School teacher Susanne Gentz to bring you a unique experience all about the exciting things we are still learning about the Moon.

This is the second in our Science on Saturdays lecture series, an opportunity for middle school students to learn about science topics and the education pathways to become scientists in those fields. Stay tuned for upcoming events, including astrobiology!
