Mine was "Name the seven Challenger Astronauts."* His was "What is the wingspan of the SR-71 Blackbird?"
However, now, via the estimable kottke, I can learn these pertinent pieces of information if the challenge is ever issued anew. Jeff Calone, are you out there? Bring it on.
* In case you were wondering, yes I could usually come up with all the names. Depends on how much we had been drinking. It was still college after all. Here they are:
- Shuttle Commander Francis "Dick" Scobee
- Shuttle Pilot Michael J. Smith
- Mission Specialist Judith Resnick
- Mission Specialist Ronald McNair
- Mission Specialist Ellison Onizuka
- Payload Specialist Gregory Jarvis
- Teacher Christa McAuliffe
