    Answer a question, leave a question

    I thought this would be fun. You just answer the question given and leave a question for the next person to answer.



    At what exact time did the New Horizons mission blast off?

    P.S. Made a mistake on the thread title...it is supose to be Answer a question and leave a question

    about 25 trillion (I have dispatched a probe to perform an accurate count. I suggest we lock this thread until the probe reports back in approximately 3 billion of your years)

    Given the historical estimates for parameters to the Drake Equation found on this page:
    http://www.answers.com/topic/drake-equation

    How many technological civilizations are in Andromeda?

    Edit to add: My point in asking this question was that, I think it should be possible to multiply the rate of star formation in our galaxy by the ratio of stars in our galaxy to stars in Andromeda. That would be the only term you'd need to change to use the equation on another galaxy (I think). If that isn't a valid assumption then I retract the question and somebody else can have a go.

    I just could not figure it out. My answer is I don't know.....





    My question is: Does someone else know the answer???

    Well, using the initial parameters gives a value of one for the Milky Way. Since the Andromeda galaxy appear to have about 62.5 times as many stars (lower estimate), and if you assume a rate of star formation proportional to the existing number of stars, then you would have to scale up the R term to 625 stars/year. This would increase the number to 62.5.

    How is the value of one AMU defined? (trick question)

    Relative to the AMU scale.

    Because humans cultivate the nice smelling ones. There are lots of no smell or bad smelling wild ones (the ones that smell bad usually have flies for pollenators.

    Po-tolo.

    Why don't answers to the questions asked have to be correct?

    Because it doesn't matter that the largest rocket engine ever
    is the Space Shuttle solid rocket motor. (That was a question
    and answer in a Space trivia quiz I wrote in the 1980's.)

    Am I in the right place?

    (I asked Buzz Aldrin that question when he and I were alone
    together in a room in the US Space and Rocket Center in
    Huntsville, Alabama. Aldrin's specialty in his graduate work
    in college, and in the Gemini and Apollo programs at NASA,
    was navigation. That is, determining where you are and
    which way you should go. He said "Yes." I wasn't in the
    right place, though.)

    Yes, because someone teached me that a long time ago. I like traditions.

    You never can tell if you are in the right place. Can you?
