Amazing Space: How well do you know the universe?

MOST of us have looked up at the sky at night and wondered what's going on up there.

What will happen to our sun? Will we still be here when it happens? Will we ever be able to step out and land on planets orbiting stars millions of light years away?

We think we know a lot about the cosmos. We've set foot on the moon and driven robots on other planets. We've even shot probes out into interstellar space beyond the reaches of our solar system.

Well, by we, I mean scientists and engineers. How much do you or I know?

This quiz should give us a very clear idea on where we stand.
