Take the Project Gemini Quiz!

posted in: Project Gemini, Quizzes | 6

Welcome to our Friday quiz!

Today we’re going to be looking at Project Gemini. Good Luck!

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

This quiz, one prize: (drawn from the high scores): One copy of our Project Gemini 3-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!

Project Gemini Quiz: You'll be challenged with 10 questions on Project Gemini. 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.

    90% not too bad. The launch complex question was a coin flip.
