I expect anyone on this forum to get this question right, but if you could pass the link on to other less space savvy people, maybe we can get some interesting answers.

Seeing the results it seems a lot of space nerds have answered your poll :D

Wasn't exactly hard...

By the way - I'm in Rogaland, not Hordaland, so don't trust your Norwegian results!

Well you see, I just read this article here: http://www.phys.ufl.edu/~det/phy2060/heavyboots.html and thought it sounded rather incredible, so I wanted to independently verify the results. Since I'm too lazy to actually phone up a bunch of random strangers, I made this poll (well, first I asked some people in irc, and got 3 wrong answers to 7 right answers, but the quality of that result is questionable).

I would like to have this poll answered by a large number of random people, not just a bunch of space geeks - but I don't feel it would be appropriate to spam the link in lots of communities where I have no prior connection, and I don't frequent any sites other than gaming or technology sites (except facebook, and I posted the link there, but a lot of my friends on that site are geeks), so it seems I'm a bit out of luck.

Thanks, I shamelessly exploited that invitation here: http://www.calibra.no/forum/default.aspx?thread=43402

edit: they didn't respond well to my posting :)

Cool, and I have a few more wrong answers now (posted the link on the dn.no also). Still 85% correct though, so I think people in general are a lot smarter than the article gives them credit for.

Remember, there are people, and then there are people
