Take the Extra Vehicular Activity Quiz!

posted in: Quizzes | 6

Welcome to our Friday quiz!

Today we’re going to be looking at EVAs. In space, on the Moon, between the Earth and the Moon. 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 Mission to the Moon 2-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!

EVA Quiz: You'll be challenged with 10 questions on EVAs. 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.

    It doesn’t seem like the answer for question 3 is consistent with the answers for 2 and 4. Am I missing something?

    (Hint: I’m referring to the kind of EVA that matches the name of the second album released by Jethro Tull.)

      That kind of EVA is still an EVA. But one Apollo 9 crew member did not leave the spacecraft at all, and is not considered to have gone EVA. Does that help at all?
