guess which one i got wrong

Same here, I thought that binary suns would have been too dynamic to allow a planetary system to form. Well I guess not, you learn something new everyday.

Even three-star systems exist in gravitational harmony. Among the more than 100 new planets discovered in recent years, some have been found in binary systems, including 16 Cygni B and 55 Cancri A. So far, alas, no one has found a habitable planet like Luke Skywalker's Tatooine.

Thanks for taking the quiz. You scored 80%

hmm messed up on the binary star system and microorganisms surviving in deep space. Not too bad since i'm still pretty tired.

80% here too.......

The microbes surving trip to the moon and teleporter tech were my two wrong answers
Space rules!

90% Cant remember which one i got wrong.

edit: Took it again to see which one I got wrong and got 100% lol

It isn't real obvious. You have scroll down a little bit, the score is above the questions.

80% woot woot I am pleased, this is a fun test. and I was going off HS biology and all those Sci-fi books I have read over the years... lol

100%, w00t.

Missed the one about Ion engines. I thought that we had them, I just didn't know we used them. I feel like an idiot know.

I got 80%. Stupid little test. Looks to me more for someone who it just full of useless trivia.

I got 80%.

I didn't know that we had seen microorganisms living in space for over 3 years.

And, I fully contend that we CAN make it to Alpha Centauri within a reasonable amount of time.

4.36 LY = 41276662732800 m, 4.36 LY = 41,276,662,732.8 km

41 Billion, 276 Million, 662 Thousand, 732.8 Kilometers.

Now, what is 'a reasonable time' ? Is it 1 year? 5 years? 10? 20?

Considering the figure they listed is 76,000 - We'll go with 100 years.

412,766,627.328 km/year.

1,130,112 km/day

47,088 km/hour

784.8 km/minute

13.08 km/second.

13,080 m/second.

13,080m/s / 300,000m/s = 0.0436

4.36 % of the speed of light!

It would have been easier to find that directly from the 4.36LY and 100 year figures, but less convincing.

13,080 m/s .. that means that 26,160 m/s is a 50 year trip. 52,320 m/s is 25.

The space station orbits at about 7,000 ft/s (trying to find my reference, that number may be a bit off) - there's 3 ft in a meter, so that's 2-3,000 m/s - unpropelled. Since there's no friction, or VERY little, a slowly building (or, quickly building) thrust could likely get even a larger craft up to that within 2-3 years of successive bursts of thrust.

Honestly, with enough cash behind this, it would be quite 'doable' to get a craft of the proper size for 2-3 humans all the way to Alpha Centauri. Many of the smaller technologies, such as closed-ecosystems for food and oxygen, successful safe fuel containment, etc... Are within our grasp. They are just not being funded highly enough. They are generally independantly funded projects run poorly by interested individuals or low-funding programs not taken seriously in NASA.

Give NASA money, and about 20 years, we would have a human-carrying craft off the ground and on a 75/80 year trip to AC. We could have a 1/2 kg craft on a 20 year journey in less than 10. I strongly contest that answer.

Now now, just because you didn't score 100% ...

Would you prefer a chemistry quiz?

Or maybe a physics quiz?

got 100% but they realy try using trick questions .
1 simple 2 simple 3 simple 4 trick question Depends on how much evedence you require . wile we may not have came out yet and said yes mars has life yet its only because we havent accutly found a bactirea yet but everother pice of evedence for life has been found including oxgean and methain gas. so its just the Ultmite proff were wating on at this point.
and unless our understanding of science is very flawed in any court this evedence is enough to convict you of the crime of life mars.
but i still said fiction as im wating just like manny here for that one cell to finly be found on mars.
5 easy 6 easy its surpises me how manny get this wrong.
7 easy on the news 8 trick question to a degree wile its true gravity never accutly ends its also true earths gravity is only .0000000 to infinty if your at alpha centiry for all intents nil .
9 easy splashed all over the net. 10 the only question that isnot trick and still requires aleast some real science that you must be aware of and isent just splashed everware. In other words it takes alest slightly more then causial glance at science from time to time to be aware of.
Now someone find a test with a challange like the other guy was saying studing the answers to the questions is the only real challange this test holds.
wile I dident do as well as I wanted to on thoes other two links titan put up I still did well on the purescience frount . Except my algrba is old and wile I know lots of science I dont worry enough about who descover the prosses and this tripes me up lots as most of the time the prosses is named after the person who descovered is .Example Newtions laws (spelling)
this refers to gravity but its one of the few names I know and Its not about newtion to me its about gravity and I couldent tell you much about the guy. So if I dont know the guy and the question is formed in a persons name I get it worng mostly lol I do know a few.

Its a shame, that people make only IQ tests relevant and forget the EQ, this matter too!

I was wrong. Totally wrong.

I used 300,000 m/s as the speed of light, upon rechecking this, I found that the true speed of light is roughly 300,000 km/s. That k costs the distance.

It is indeed almost impossible to get to AC. I apologise for my wrongness.

Cool I scored 90 %. I did'nt even do that in school...
