|micropooz||MSNBC has a quiz that's pretty fun: How much do you know about the shuttle?|
I found out that I wasn't as up to speed on Shuttle as I thought! But was still way above average on their curve.
Let's see if we can skew their curve!
|AstroAutos||9/10... not bad. |
|Paul23||Only 5 for me but to be honest I was pretty astonished to get that many!|
Am I really supposed to know who already flew? And I'm not familiar with feet and inches when it comes to height!
|Delta7||9/10. I got the maximum height wrong (I could have sworn Ox van Hoften was 6'5).|
|moorouge||Me got 9. Like Delta7 got the height restriction wrong. Didn't realise that things had stretched a bit since the height restrictions for Mercury & Gemini.|
|Rob Joyner||I missed #10.|
|PowerCat||10/10 here too|
|Jay Chladek||The height question was my only miss, although I was off by two inches. Shuttle pretty much made height no longer a factor, although I believe it still is in the T-38s. The Soyuz capsules are a bit more restrictive, although after Scott Parazynski couldn't fly to Mir due to his height being too tall, the descent module was redesigned a little for the Soyuz TMA craft (Mir used the TM series) to accomodate astronauts of a taller height.|
|ringo67||I got 9 out of 10.|
I was tripped up by the time to orbital velocity question.
|Fra Mauro||When I think of the shuttle, I think of a phrase that Bill Parcells once used about Phil Simms, which say something like, you may not like him but you will miss him when he is gone.|
|KSCartist||10 out of 10 but I guessed at the height and wasn't sure about the toilet in Tranquility.|
|Tykeanaut||7/10 - best stick with Mercury, Gemini and Apollo I think!|
quote: 8/10 for me -- I missed the same 2 questions.

|dogcrew5369||9 out of 10. The Tranquility node question stumped me. All we hear about is the cupola! Need to study up on it more.|
|astro-nut||I scored a 10 out of 10. Not bad at all.|
|neke||9/10 -- I missed the one about the number of STS-130 astronauts who had previously flown.|
|MCroft04||90%: missed the heigth question.|
|tegwilym||9/10. I had to guess on the toilet one, and go that wrong. |
