Water on the Moon?
The second of four Web Seminars on the topic of Lunar Exploration was held on Tuesday, November 14, 2006, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. The presenter was Dr. Anuradha Koratkar, Associate Research Scientist at the University of Maryland Baltimore County's Goddard Earth Sciences and Technology (GEST) Center. The presentation focused on the search for water on the Moon. Recent observations indicate the possibility of ice on the Moon, in particular, within lunar craters at the north and south poles of the Moon. The upcoming Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission will continue the search for water using different instruments.

This Web Seminar, developed in collaboration with the National Science Digital Library, took place on Wednesday, November 11, 2009 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern time. Dr. Lisa Regalla, Science Editor for DragonflyTV provided participants with a greater understanding of nanoscale science by giving a brief history of how our understanding of nanotechnology has rapidly grown over time. Dr. Regalla cited several examples of nano-level phenomena found in nature that scientists have studied. These phenomena help us to understand the structure of matter on a very minute scale and gives scientists and engineers opportunities to design nanoscale materials as a result. Stronger tennis racquets made from nanotube fibers, nano cleaning agents for water, and odor-absorbing socks made with nanosilver are all examples of how nanotechnology is being used in our everyday consumer products.
