Description: It is commonly thought that the moon has no atmosphere – we hear how the Apollo astronaut’s footprints are undisturbed because there is no atmosphere or weather on the Moon to precipitate any changes, but we now know that the Moon actually does have an extremely thin exosphere. With us today is Brian Day, the Education and Public Outreach Lead for NASA’s upcoming LADEE mission, and with the NASA Lunar Science Institute.

Bio: The NLSI brings together leading lunar scientists from around the world to further NASA lunar science and exploration.

Brian Day is the Education and Public Outreach Lead for NASA’s upcoming LADEE mission, and works with the NASA Lunar Science Institute.
