That's not far out is it?  Not an outlandish answer


don't know why you think that out of order, even allowing for the contestants being out of order as to the planets line-up.

My favourite one recently, Bradley, "St. Michael is the patron saint of what?" Answer, "Marks & Spencers.

I honestly, truthfully do not know the answer.

Surely it's common knowledge that the 2 inner planets do not have satellites. Do/did people learn nothing in school?

I learned a lot of stuff but have forgotten some of it.

I didn't know that - the planets & their satellites were not discussed at my grammar school to the best of my memory.

What is "common knowledge" to TTT - well....

TTT, you are lucky if basic physics is taught - things like Newton's second law (F=ma).

I guess my school must have been exceptional. At the time I didn't realise but the levels of ignorance about things that are obvious to me is evidence of that. ......or is my superpower kicking in again? ...mmmm!

Astronomy / solar system is not a common school subject in my experience. What subject heading does it come under?

We did maths/physics/chemistry/biology/etc/etc. Astronomy - not in my notes.

Question Author

I learned about the solar system in Junior school. We had huge posters on the wall about this and other things. Later in secondary school astro physics was covered in physics and cross over lessons with maths.

davebro - they studied astronomy and astrophysics at TTT's school as his teachers debated which rocket to put him on and launch him out of the Earth's influence.....sadly, it didn't work!


Venus has no natural satellites.[157] It has several trojan asteroids: the quasi-satellite 524522 Zoozve[158][159] and two other temporary trojans, 2001 CK32 and 2012 XE133.[160] In the 17th century, Giovanni Cassini reported a moon orbiting Venus, which was named Neith and numerous sightings were reported over the following 200 years, but most were determined to be stars in the vicinity. Alex Alemi's and David Stevenson's 2006 study of models of the early Solar System at the California Institute of Technology shows Venus likely had at least one moon created by a huge impact event billions of years ago.[

So maybe the contestant thought the question said HAD not HAVE
