CLEVELAND — Outer Space. So vast, so captivating.
Since the dawn of humankind we have yearned to understand the mysteries of the stars.
As NASA prepares to once again journey into the cosmos, this seems like the perfect time to test the basic, astronomical knowledge of everyday citizens.
It’s time for… SPACE QUIZ!
I decided to stop by a recent Wade Oval Wednesday to put my fellow Clevelanders to the test - asking questions I found on a website called Sciencekids.com. I asked questions like, "What planet is nicknamed the red planet?" and "What is the name of the only planet not named after a god?" If you'd like to prove your inner science kid, feel free to play along!
So thanks to all of out good sport contestants for reminding us that outer space remains a wondrous and mysterious place, far more mysterious to some than others. A lot of people think the sun is a planet as it turns out. More people than one would hope.
Keep your eyes on the heavens, friends, and see you next time on….Space Quiz!
