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.

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.....)

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.

You should do a true/false about lunar tides, specifically: assisting life on earth.

Oh awful! 1/3. But what an interesting thing to learn. ????

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

Praetorianus Fair enough.

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.

Praetorianus Fair enough.

Maybe, it depends on how deep it gets.

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 :)

10/24/14 12:25 am

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
