Last one...our Ninja? 😀

No idea. Too many references out there.

True. I would have withdrawn the question, but decided to leave it in play. The Ninja is in reference to an asteroid:

To hunt for the "ninjas" of the cosmos -- dim objects that lurk in the vast dark spaces between planets and stars -- scientists are building by far the most sensitive set of wide-angle infrared goggles ever, a space telescope called the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE.

WISE will scan the entire sky at infrared wavelengths, creating the most comprehensive catalog yet of dark and dim objects in the cosmos: vast dust clouds, brown dwarf stars, asteroids -- even large, nearby asteroids that might pose a threat to Earth.

Thanks CruzanIron.
Job well done: we'll toughen up in the next round!

A little math anyone? 🙂

1. What number can’t be expressed as a fraction; this means it is an irrational number. When written as a decimal, it never repeats and never ends.

2. What comes after a million, billion and trillion (up to 10)?

3. Which number should come next in this series?

14, 21, 30, 41, ?

a) 46

b) 54

c) 56

d) 58

Shall we pay a visit to several neighborhood planets and moons and listen to what they are chattering about?

Math anyone?

The Library of Congress keeps 24,189,688 cataloged books in its classification system. Books are usually published with ten words across the page and 34 lines down per page. Having said that, how many letters are there in the total number of books in the library?

Yes! 33. This will reveal the answer:

How many letters are there in - "the total number of books in the library"?

Excellent! 😀
