Trivia 4/8

trivia 4/8

Your taste buds are dulled at high altitude and by the cabin pressure in jets, so Airline food seems to have less flavor.

1. Which popular 1980's TV Cop Show featured a character named Frank Furillo ?
2. What was the name of the plane that bombed Hiroshima ?
(Bonus; who was it named for ?)
3. Which composer wrote The Marriage of Figaro ?
4. What sort of tool is a gardener's "Trug" ?
5. In which Dickens work would I find a character named Uriah Heap ?
6. The vocals and flute work of Ian Anderson headed up what 60's rock band ?
7. Cinemashup;
A redneck sheriff needs Sidney Poitier's help when zombies over-run Sparta, Mississippi !
8. What was the better-known name of the WWI era exotic dancer and prostitute executed by a French firing squad for espionage in 1917 ?
"Supernova" is the term given to the birth of a new star.
1. Hill Street Blues
2. the Enola Gay ( the pilot's mother)
3. Mozart
4. A Basket
5. David Copperfield
6. Jethro Tull
7. In the Heat of the Night of the Living Dead
8. Mata-Hari
a supernova is actually the DEATH, by explosion, of a star........
A star birth nebula (or star formation region) is a cloud of gas and dust in which new stars are being formed from the raw material of the cloud. In places where the cloud has become compressed (where the gas and dust are very close together), the gas and dust start "clumping." At a certain stage, these clumps start heating up in the center, and when that happens, star formation begins. After many years of clumping and heating, a star will get so hot in the middle (over 10 million degrees Centigrade) that it will begin to make its own energy it starts to shine.
