Round 2 of our Trivia Contest!
This one is the Spaced Out Trivia :P
First person to get all 4 questions right wins a nice chunk of store credit! Woot!

Here we go!

1. What type of star does a Massive Star's gravitational collapse create?

2. Name the three astronauts that died in space, and what the official cause of death was?

3. What is the spiral effect created by a black hole called?

4. What links people to the larger world and what object in space contributes to it's tempo?


Goooooooooooooood luck!!!! :D

1) White Dwarf
2) Georgi Dobrovolski Viktor Patsayev Vladislav Volkov - exposed to vacuum of space
3) Schwarzchild radius
4) the internet; the Ku-band antenna on the International Space Station


shit, that sucked..i didn't quite understand question #4, so i guessed.

Edited: Answer for #4

1. A Massive Star's gravitational collapse creates what is known as a White Dwarf.

2. The Challenger Space Shuttle exploded 73 seconds after launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida. The seven astronauts for the final Challenger mission who perished were: Francis R. Scobee, Michael J. Smith, Ronald E. McNair, Ellison S. Onizuka, Judith A. Resnik, Gregory B. Jarvis, and Sharon Christa McAuliffe.

3. The spiral effect created by a black hole is called the Schwarzchild radius.

4. I'm really not sure about this question, but from what I gather, the answer you're looking for would be satellites.

EDIT: Wow, I read question two, then I read my answer, and then I realized that I had one too many drinks tonight and I watched that program on the Challenger a couple weeks ago way too intensely. hahaha

welp here goes:

1. white dwarf

2. Georgi Dobrovolski, Victor Patsayev, Vladislav Volkov--crew of the Soyuz 11 killed after undocking from the space station Salyut, a valve was accidentally left opened exposing them to the vacuum of space--suffocation (ouch)

3. photon spheres--spherical region of space where gravity is strong enough that photons are forced to travel in orbits. Lower bound for stable orbit in the photon sphere is a radius of one and a half times the Schwarzschild radius

4. this one is so OPEN!!! my first thought could be the oceans (oceans connect densely populated continents) which the moon regulates the tides (tempo). i think wizzi might be right too though... hmmmm

Answer to the fourth question could possibly be gravity. It is controlled by the mass of the earth as per Newtons law of gravitation. However I could be wrong. It does not have a tempo but a steady gravitation acceleration of 32.2 ft/s^2 or 9.81 m/s^2.

But like I said, I could be wrong.

I agree it's gravity and the object in space that contributes to it's temp would be the sun.

Wow! Question 4 is a toughie. I'm not sure about the first part, but my immediate first thought for the second half was the moon. Good luck guys!

clues...

1. "Massive Star"- too much mass for a white dwarf

2. no clue is needed; the answer has been displayed

3. Not Schwarzschild, but Kerr. The term used to describe this effect.

4. Think your Tempo; think your metronome.

Shweew, this is a hard one...

Keep trying =)

1) Neutron Star
2) Georgi Dobrovolski Viktor Patsayev Vladislav Volkov - exposed to vacuum of space
3) Kerr Metric
4) Heart; sun (increase in temp leads to an increase in heart rate)
