Judging from the high number of readers who take the quiz in our monthly e-newsletter, What’s Up, lots of people enjoy a good brain teaser now and then. Well, here’s a chance for our blog readers to put themselves to the test.
Created by Roger Launius, senior curator for lunar and planetary spacecraft, this five-question quiz will test your knowledge about space exploration and related artifacts in the Museum’s collection. Best of all, it’s not only a fun way to find out how much you know, it’s also a great way to support the National Air and Space Museum. Every question you answer correctly earns ten cents for the Museum, helping support the incredible work that goes into creating a wealth of memorable experiences at both our locations. Plus, after you complete the quiz, you are eligible to receive a free “Are You Smarter than a Curator?” sticker.
So, think you have what it takes to answer questions created by one of the Smithsonian’s world-renowned curators? It’s time to find out — take the quiz today!
The quiz is available from May 16 through June 17.
