After last week's bio-related questions, this week's Science Friday was a return to astronomy. If you have any topics you'd like to see, let me know in the comments. In the meantime, how did these go?
I can't remember the last time that I got all 3 questions right. Yay!
3 for 3, one more lucky guess than remembering something I'd read.
you have chosen... wisely.
Woohoo! I'm 3 for 3 this week! :-)
you're on fire lately.
Oh yeah! Watch though...now I'll miss them all for the next 3 weeks.
2/3. Completely guesswork, I've never heard of Trojans before. (Well, not astronomically speaking.....)
good guessing, then.
I'd like to thank my kids and their love of space for these answers. I truly would not have known without constantly looking up information for them.
I'm not sure I would've had the questions, either.
First time in a while I got all of them!
3/3. Woo hoo
Do star trek questions. might be fun
oh, that could be fun.
Thanks Firefly, for your science polls.
glad you enjoy them! you're very welcome.
More bio :)
bio? I can try.
Try birds :)
Illegal immigrants on Mars.
You should do a true/false about lunar tides, specifically: assisting life on earth.
I think I could do that.
Oh awful! 1/3. But what an interesting thing to learn. ????
I'm glad I'm not boring you.
2/3. Missed #3.
I think it's pretty remarkable that these numbers would be so close, but it does make sense.
Just a random tidbit: The 7 largest moons in the solar system are Ganymede, Titan, Callisto, Io, our Moon, Europa, Triton. Earth is the only rocky planet to have a big moon. Talk softly but carry a big stick ;)
0/3 3 weeks in a row, in some cases, that is 100%
it is. equal odds as getting 100% for the weeks in a row, assuming straight guesses.
chippy, tell me what you choose so I can pick the opposite lol
3/3 though the third was more or less a guess. My suggestion would be questions from the field of chemistry. Quick: which substance has the formula NH3?
ammonia. I could do chem. I assumed you'd do well on these.
Maybe, it depends on how deep it gets.
ooh ooh pick me! I'm in Chem right now lol
and the molecular formula of ammonia is the least of my worries.... :-/
If you can tell me the difference between polycondensation and polyaddiction you may qualify :)
Fuck that. I'm not *that* qualified lol. Isn't that OChem? I'm a teeny freshman (though I'll be a sophomore next quarter due to AP credits) so I'm still dealing with simple shit like oxidation-reduction and polyatomic anions. Wish me luck for my
first midterm tomorrow!
Good luck, you'll ace it :)
Hold the anions on mine, Droo.
Suggestions are always welcome. I'll do my best.
