Take the Apollo 11 Moonwalk Quiz!

posted in: Quizzes | 8

Welcome to our Friday quiz!

With this week’s 45th anniversary of Apollo 11, we’ve started off with the second of our Apollo 11 quizzes, all about the Moonwalk. Good Luck!

This quiz will be available, but prize eligibility will end on Sunday at midnight US EDT.

This quiz, one prize: (drawn from the high scores): One copy of our Mission to the Moon DVD set. (If you already have this set I will make a substitution)

Since we’re offering prizes we ask that you take the quiz only once, and that you do NOT use the Google machine to give us your answers. Good Luck!

Moonwalk Quiz: You'll be challenged with 10 questions on the Apollo 11 Moonwalk. Since we consider our quiz candidates to be a competent lot, but this quiz is one of our tougher tests, we've established a passing grade on this quiz of 70%. The quiz features ten questions, each worth ten points.

    Another good quiz there Mark….now if you’ll excuse me I need to put an ice pack on my poor overworked brain. Needed a good think over some of those.

    Great quiz Mark! I scored 90% – had to guess on the question of who went farther from the LM, and I got the person right, but the reason wrong. There’s always a tough one like that in the bunch, which makes for a great exercise.

    Happy Apollo 45, everyone!

    Yet another great quiz! I am lucky to have witnessed remembered -MOST- of these during the actual events of that spectacular day (or shortly thereafter).

    Crazy how short their moonwalk was compared to all the others. We have what, a total of approximately 80 hours of lunar EVA from all 6 moonwalking missions? Apollo 11 barely scratches the surface.
