I wouldn't count on that staying constant. Who knows what happens outside our atmosphere for sure in terms of how it may change going forward.
I believe trace atmosphere has been detected now though. Nothing to get worked up about or do something really silly like pop a helmet seal to test
It does show changes are constant though and who knows? Maybe the Moon has quite a few surprises left for us. After all, we've spent a whole...what?
5 years of sporadic periods with direct observation/contact to learn anything with Apollo?
Imagine what we'll know about our little friend when we've had 10-15 years of 24/7 constant human presence. They'll do more than putter around in a
rover and hop about for science and photo ops.
