Take the Apollo 15 Quiz!

posted in: Quizzes | 5

Welcome to our Friday quiz! (On Monday. I missed Friday… due to illness. Let’s just call it a scrub)

With the anniversary of the mission going on, we’re going to be looking at the mission of Apollo 15. 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 Apollo 15 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!

Apollo 15 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.

    Great quiz, Mark! I got them all except the number of EVAs, and for the very reason your answer feedback stated. I always forget about that part!
