Well, not really an IQ test per se; but it is a short quiz on your knowledge of science fact versus science fiction. I scored a 70% -- guess I'm optimistic.

Take the test here.

After you've submitted your answers for scoring, follow the Web links to learn more about science fact and fiction from Space.com.

Thanks for taking the quiz. You scored 100%


Aww yeah! *Pats surprised self on back.* The quiz isn't as interesting as the facts behind the questions and other articles on space.com.

I thought we found microrganisms on Mars, thought the moon was not considered deep space and I forget the other question I missed. I guessed on the TIE fighter question and was right -- never knew what TIE stood for.

The quiz probably came from space.com -- MSNBC uses them a lot.

80%

6. All of the gas giant planets in our solar system (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) have rings.
Science fiction is not correct.
Saturn's rings are the most pronounced and visible, but they aren't the only ones. Check out the rings (and clouds) of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune.

7. In the "Star Wars" films, the Imperial TIE Fighters are propelled by ion engines (TIE stands for Twin Ion Engine). While these spacecraft are fictional, real ion engines power some of today's spacecraft.
Science fiction is not correct.

Blew it on the rings and functional ION engines Go figure

I got a 100%. But thats only because I try to keep abreast of current events but if you take a sample of people from off the street I would be willing to bet half of them would score 20% or lower.

But, most would probably get the tie fighter question right... And to think I had to guess on that one.... So much for my IQ. Better throw that Mensa application out...

What was found on Mars was not proven to be life - just speculated to be.

The moon isn't deep space, but any body, planet, star etc will have gravity. Not just ones in our solar system.

Figures. I have a degree in math, thought I did ok on the test, but after submitting the answers I got no score back!! At least I don't see a score. I tried going back to the page, but now the questions don't even appear!!!

I guess I flunked!!

Did this happen to anyone else? Or am I the lone retard here? I guess if you're stupid in the 1st place, then going to school doesn't accomplish much. You're still STUPID!!!

I answered and submitted, anticipating a 90% result.

And so it was confirmed, along with my need to bone up on the 50 species of hyperthermophiles.

Thanks for taking the quiz. You scored 100%


Cool...I was flip-flopping on the micro-organisms in space question.... I thought there was something about an Apollo mission, but wasn't sure...seems it was right, but it was more of a guess...

90%, those damn space organisms get me everytime. How many movies have I see where some space virus kills the black guy first, and some perfect looking white couple gets to sail off into the stars? Ofcourse the woman is 38-24-36, with a genius IQ, oh and she is the galaxy's leading exobiolgist/exovirologist. Would implants even work in space? Hmmm, it might be time to submit that paper to NASA. Isn't it vitally importan to national security to know the effects of microgravity on boob jobs?
