Take the Apollo Quiz!

posted in: Project Apollo, Quizzes | 7

Welcome to our Friday quiz!

Today we’re going to be looking at general questions about Project Apollo. 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 “Developing Apollo” 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!

Apollo Quiz: You'll be challenged with 10 general questions on Apollo. 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.



1) What Apollo mission found the "Genesis Rock?"
2) What was the name of the eventual "mode" used for the Apollo flights?
3) Which mission flew the LM for the first time on an unmanned test?
4) What was the first manned mission to use the Saturn IB?
5) What major piece of lunar surface gear was decided NOT to deploy on Apollo 11?
6) What was the name of the Apollo Guidance Computer program used in the Lunar Module?
7) Who was the last man to orbit the Moon alone?
8) What was the name of the Apollo 14 Lunar Module?
9) At the very tip of the launch escape system was an array of 8 pitot tubes in a structure known as what?
10) During which mission did the command module splash down under only two inflated parachutes?

    Clever questions. I will neither say “trick” nor elaborate on the one that ‘tickled’ me. I would like to think that I knew the answer at one time, but honestly, if I learned something, I am happy!.
