Science Fact or Fiction: Online Version Part 3
« on: 01/07/2006 04:16:23 »
Yet more interesting questions. Hopefully, no ambiguity in these. Answers to follow in 48 hours.

1. Olympus Mons, the tallest volcano in the solar system is located on Mars and is 20 km high at its peak. True or False?

2. Solar winds slam into earth’s magnetic field at an average velocity of 400 km/second. True or False?

3. A Kepler strip is a 3-d shape who’s surface has only 1 side. True or False?

3.

1 Probably true  Its the biggest one I can think of and bigger than Hawaii from the sea floor to peak  that is unless they've found anything particularly big on IO recently.

2  Seems a bit fast to me may be high by an order of magnitude haven't looked it up though
 Edit   wrong on that one! wikipedia gives  Near Earth, the velocity of the solar wind varies from 200 to 889 km/s.


3  The 3d shape with only one side is a Moibus strip and kepler had nothing to do with it so thast's false

Learn, create, test and tell
evolution rules in all things
God says so!

Olympus Mons is 25 KM high.
Soul Surfer is correct, a Mobius Strip has just 1 side is a Mobius Strip.
