Happy National Moon Day #MasonScience 🌔🌑🌙. Did you know that the moon is Earth's only permanent natural satellite. It is the fifth-largest natural satellite in the Solar System, and the largest among planetary satellites relative to the size of the planet that it orbits. Isn't space amazing?

#MasonScience very own @georgemasonu Atmospheric, Ocean, and Earth Science associate professor Daniel Tong appeared on @wusa9 to talk about the impact of the Saharan dust storms expected to settle upon the United States. Tong discusses how this rare phenomenon is an indicator of the greater danger facing humanity as dangerous microbes make their way around the globe. The dust particles within the storm could prove problematic for older people and those with respiratory issues, exacerbating the spread of microbes causing meningitis in Africa and Valley Fever in the southwestern US.

#MasonScience loves highlighting all of the hard workthe interesting research our students are doing. Susan Howard, who received her PhD in @georgemasonesp, used her time @georgemasonu to identify non-compliant behaviors and explore disease dynamics. Her research found that the causal link between wildlife health and human health can be created while maintaining the protective role of wildlife. Howard is now off to apply game-based learning in other disciplines throughout the world by using the company she co-founded, Howard Delafield International.
