Musea Quiz 10/17

October 24, 2017

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

I say Earthlings have landed on Mars. You say no.
When I tell you why I know that it is true, you will say … Yes Tom you are correct and I was wrong. Explain what is going on!

IS …
Bacteria are Earthlings just as much as you and me. Though NASA does everything it can to keep the outer space hardware sterile, I doubt they cover EVERY bacterial Earthling. So I say, recently, Earthlings have landed on Saturn – and in all likelihood when the spacecraft Cassini fell into Saturn 9/15/17, there were bacteria aboard and they went down with the ship!

I had no correct eligible answers. Seems you didn’t have a GERM of an idea on this one. I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of any of my 9 CDs, or copy of one of my artworks IF you are the first to …
