    I got 4 correct out of 12. In question 3, I thought the moon has no atmosphere. A very interesting quiz, but not an easy one. Thank you Greg.

    That's a tough quiz. I got 3 and 5.

    Knowing about the moon is good to us because many things are related with the moon like existence of tides etc.

    7 out of 12. Went for the missing atmosphere (nice one, Greg) but recovered a bit on the space mission questions.

    @Greg Bernhardt:
    Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are denser. Vesta is a bit denser. Io is denser. Various small particles should have a higher density.

    4 total lunar eclipses in a row are impossible. "Blood moon" is just a simple lunar eclipse, or four full moons in a season. Either or, not both.

    10 out of 12, made a wrong guess on how many moons fit inside the Earth (should have calculated it in my head), and I had no idea what a Blood Moon was but I don't consider that a matter of physics anyway. :wink:

    I think a better wording for question 10 would be that the moon is the second densest satellite in the solar system.

    The second densest moon?

    Oh, and various artificial satellites are denser than the Moon.

    Got China, the night launch and the sun/eclipsing moon wrong. And the two questions that didn't have a right answer.
