4. What is the current method of finding planets outside the Solar System?
A) Watching the movement of their star. A wavy path means that something is orbiting the star;
B) Using large space telescopes to detect the very faint light of the planets;
C) Watching the changes in the brightness of the star. Periodical decrease in brightness means that something is orbiting the star;
D) Using radio telescopes to detect the signs of alien civilization.
5. What health problems weightlessness causes?
A) Bones age faster, muscles become weaker. There are problems in the digestive system, too.
B) Astronauts lose their sense of balance.
C) Weightlessness causes euphoria, releasing a huge quantity of endorphin which leads to brain damage.
D) Astronauts puts on so much weight, that they have to learn walking again after return.
6. What is the best way of building houses on the Moon?
A) You should dig caves under the surface to be protected from meteorites.
B) Ready-made metal parts should be shipped to the Moon, they are easy to join.
C) You should use the dust on the surface for making concrete.
D) You should use inflatable structures, because plastic is the lightest material to carry there.
7. What is required of a moon in the Solar System for being considered habitable?
- Liquid water and good soil for agriculture;
- Atmosphere with oxygen;
- Liquid water, orbit in the habitable zone;
- Water on the surface (liquid, ice or fog)
8. How many extra solar planets are detected by the Kepler space telescope?
- 17, one of them around the Proxima Centauri;
- More than 800;
- 157, some of them Earth-size;

9. Which are the methods of the slow interstellar travel?
A) Generation ships and using wormholes;
B) Generation ships, island hopping, suspended animation;
C) Suspended animation with robot control;
D) There are none, you should travel as fast as you can.
10. When should humans start for the stars?
A) As soon as possible, since the distance is so huge;
B) It doesn’t matter, as you can’t live long enough to arrive;
C) 50 years from now, because faster methods of travel can be developed, so you arrive earlier;
D) 200 years from now, because we need more energy to start a spaceflight.
11. During the Nasa Mars Isolation Experiment in Hawaii, which routine was not practised on a daily basis?
12. We have learnt from a presentation that we can produce 860 litres gas oxygen from 1 litre fluid oxygen, and an average person consumes 550 litres oxygen gas/day. Let’s assume that we can take 3 tanks of fluid oxygen with us to a mission in a landing module, each with a volume of 1 hectolitre. The mission is 30 days long, with no opportunity to gain or regain oxygen. At most, how many person can take part in the mission?

D. the atmosphere is thin
14. How do we call the sum of those environmental conditions that a certain species (ie animal) prefers most?
A: Tolerance range
B: Upper limit of tolerance
C:Zone of intolerance

A: The digestive system (stomach and bellies)
B:The respiratory system (lung)
C: The nerve system
D: The circulatory system (heart and blood vessels)
17. What is the name of the material that covers the most part of the surface of Mars (so we could try to make concrete out of it for building houses, etc.)?
A: miracle plaster

- PE, first aid, insulation, toxicity
- English, PE, planetology
- first aid, immunology, genetic engineering
- animal psychology, engineering, insulation
19 Which is the third step of Nasa’s plan to make the Mars habitable?
- Once carbon dioxide evolves in the atmosphere, it will form an ozone layer, shielding the surface from the biologically-lethal solar ultraviolet radiation.
- Once oxygen evolves in the atmosphere, it will form an ozone layer, shielding the surface from the biologically-lethal solar ultraviolet radiation.
- Once carbon monoxide evolves in the atmosphere, it will form an ozone layer, shielding the surface from the biologically-lethal solar infra violet radiation.
- Once oxygen evolves in the atmosphere, it will form an ozone layer, shielding the surface from the biologically-lethal solar infra violet radiation.

B. The electromagnetic wave travels about 10 times faster than the sound and it needs no medium to travel in.
C. Mobile phones use electromagnetic waves and even bats can detect this type of waves.
D. At lightening during rainstorm we can usually experience both electromagnetic and sound waves.
21. According to estimation how many times would be more expensive to get a man to the Mars than lunching a space shuttle?
22. Why might it be not possible to relocate more thousand people to Mars in the near future?
A. Because the cost of it would be about 10 times so much as one year budget of USA.
