How Much Do You Know About Space
Take this 10-question quiz
by Carol Pinchefsky
Space has been much in the news lately, particularly with the death of astronaut Sally Ride. But how much do you really know about the “final (some would say “next) frontier?” Take this quiz and find out.

Space enthusiasts will find this rather basic, but don’t worry…I have a far more challenging quiz planned for later.

1. How far away is space, according to international standards?

A. 62 miles/100 km: the distance between New York City and Hamilton NJ
B. 620 miles/1000 km: the distance between Kansas City KS and Boulder CO
C. 6200 miles/10,000 km: the distance between Anchorage AK and Ghandidham, India
D. 62,000 miles/100,000 km: two and a half times the circumference of the Earth

2. Who was the first woman in space?

A. Sally Ride
B. Christa McCauliffe
C. Lori Garver
D. Valentina Tereshkova

You can find the rest of my quiz here, over at Forbes.

Good luck!
