G'evening,
Is anyone interested in a few science related questions?

1. In the Western Hemisphere, what landmark is the Easternmost point of the United States? Dougtamjj: Point Udall, STX, USVI: Yes! Excellent!

2. What is the fastest moving creature on Earth? (Please reserve this question for JJ). JJ: Peregrine Falcon: Speed- 250mph. Yes JJ!

3. What planet in our solar system has hurricane force winds, yet the winds are blowing at a speed of only 4mph? Why?

4. With a temperature of 5000 degrees F - as compared to our Sun @ 10,000 degrees F. - and 10,000 times denser than Sol, define this "Dainty Star."

5. Which planet in the solar system has no magnetic field? Dougtamjj: Mars. Yes!

Have fun!
Swan

Two questions to go. Anyone?

G'evening, Here are the remaining answers:

1. In the Western Hemisphere, what landmark is the Easternmost point of the United States? Dougtamjj: Point Udall, STX, USVI: Yes! Excellent!

2. What is the fastest moving creature on Earth? (Please reserve this question for JJ). JJ: Peregrine Falcon: Speed- 250mph. Yes JJ!

3. What planet in our solar system has hurricane force winds, yet the winds are blowing at a speed of only 4mph? Why? Our little friend, Venus. Due to the planet's slow rotation: One day on Venus is equivalent to 243 Earth days - 1 day is 2,802 hrs. long - temperature of 867 degrees F. - and rotates clockwise as compared to the counterclockwise rotation of the other planets.

4. With a temperature of 5000 degrees F - as compared to our Sun @ 10,000 degrees F. - and 10,000 times denser than Sol, define this "Dainty Star." A Red Dwarf.

5. Which planet in the solar system has no magnetic field? Dougtamjj: Mars. Yes!

Thank you all!
Swan

Anyone interested in a little brain teaser?
Enjoy!

A man worked for a high-security institution, and one day he went in to work only to find that he could not log in to his computer terminal. His password wouldn't work. Then he remembered that the passwords are reset every month for security purposes. So he went to his boss and they had this conversation:

Man-"Hey boss, my password is out of date."

Boss-"Yes, that's right. The password is different, but if you listen carefully you should be able to figure out the new one: It has the same amount of letters as your old password, but only four of the letters are the same."

Man: "Thanks boss."

With that, he went and correctly logged into his station.

What was the new password?
BONUS: What was his old password?

Right, Daniel! Excellent!

The old one was : Out of date
The new one is: Different
He said: My password is "Out of date." And the boss told him the new one when he said: "The password is different."

Here is a fun one for you Julie!
And, of course, anyone else...:-)

Follow these steps and see if you can figure this out.

1) Get a brown, cardboard box.
2) Get purple, orange, and turquoise paints.
3) Paint the box orange.
4) Paint on purple spots.
5) Paint on turquoise stripes.
7) Turn it upside down.
8) Lie on your side.

What is missing from this sequence?

At Duke University, there were four sophomores taking Organic Chemistry. They had done so well on all the quizzes, midterms, labs, etc., that each had a solid "A" for the semester.

These guys were feeling pretty confident the weekend before finals, so they decided to go up to the University of Virginia to party with some friends. They had a great time; however, after all the partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Duke until early Monday.

Rather than take the final on schedule Monday morning, they decided to find their professor after the exam and let him know why they had missed it. They explained that they had gone to UVA for the weekend with the plan to come back to study, but, unfortunately, they had had a flat tire on the way back, hadn't brought a spare, and hadn't been able to get help for a long time.

As a result, they had missed the exam.

The Professor thought it over and then agreed that they could make up the final the following day. The guys were elated and relieved. They studied hard that night and went in the next day at
the appointed time.

The professor placed the four friends in separate rooms, handed each of them a test booklet, and told them to begin.

They looked at the first problem, worth 5 points. It was something simple about free radical formation.

"Cool," thought all four simultaneously, each one in his separate room, "this is going to be easy." Each finished the problem and then turned the page.

On the second page was written: "For 95 points answer this question:

The final question proved the professor knew the students were lying. What was the question?

G'evening,

Welcome aboard Arianespace's Ariane 5 rocket as it launches from the ESA (European Space Agency) Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana S.A.
Aboard this workhorse of Arianespace's three launchers - ( Ariane 5, Soyuz, and Vega) - is a camera that shares with us it's 'journey' of a few minutes to LEO (Low Earth Orbit). ESA (Arianespace) partners with USA - NASA in the ISS. They are instrumental in transporting supplies to ISS and crew members (via Soyuz).
Enjoy!
