A list of things NASA find essential-or not-on trips to the moon.
Put them in order of necessity, then see how your answers compare to NASA's.

Houston, we have a problem, 20% of my answers were wrong.

Hey it's not my fault that the 45 cal. pistols were a higher priority than a star chart. I didn't want to go up to the damn moon in the first place!

:p really I just have no idea what's important. But I did get the oxygen and water right at least.

Hopeless - I would never reach my base. Only 36 %.

I had the pistols right, but not for the reason they wanted, I just figured blowing my head off would be preferable to suffocating.

To me it would be preferable than being isolated in space with only a tin box and a few feet of rope to keep me alive.

Can you BELIEVE I got the matches wrong?!

And science was one of the few subjects I was any good at in school!

Yes, I can believe - me too (and not only the matches! ). But I don't know - in some cases I definitely would like to start a discussion with the Nasa or would like to get more information because I am a little bit surprised about the order of the items mentioned, even if they explain their purpose.

Had a go (54%).

Disagreed with some of the answers:

Signal flares: Will these actually work without oxygen? I assume it's a burning/explosion effect... (ditto will the pistols fire? Gunpowder does have some oxygen present in the form of the potassium nitrate (saltpetre), but I think it still needs oxygen)

Flashlight is more useful: Can use to signal, and exploring the cliffs they seem to think you can scale with your 20 ft rope.

(and I don't fancy my chances of navigating by the star chart, my map-reading is suspect enough as it is...)

Ooh, just tried that, and you're right.

Another of my gripes with the quiz, if you leave it in the identical order and drag the oxygen to the top of the list (supposedly making it more similar), it drops down to a 30% score.

Not impressed by the designers of this quiz.
