    I got all of them right, except for number seven.

    7. What have scientists recently discovered on Mars?

    I got all twelve but had to think about a couple of them: what was discovered on Mars, and whether anti-biotics can be used against viruses (then I remembered there are such things as anti-viral drugs).

    I think it's acceptable that people would get a few wrong.

The sorts of things people should know about how the world works on a very basic level so that they could survive just fine on a day-to-day basis.

    I would not expect the average person to know what stem cells can do, how lasers work, or how big an electron is. These are things that are interesting to know, but will not make or break your understanding of the world. That a person knows that atoms exist and they are extremely small, that cells make up your body and can be damaged, and that lasers can damage your eyes because they are very bright is good enough really.

    11/12 Gotta love missing the first question that 91% of people get right.

    Got them all. It is really sad that people got only ten or less correct.

    I was concerned about the laser and electron questions though.

    Is an electron smaller than an atom???
    Yes) Its a constituent or sub-part of an atom.
    Yes) It's modelled by a dirac delta function, which IS a point

    localization issues
    No) Wave functions, look at the size of 90% probability of locating
    no) wave functions, electrons move, especially free ones. throughout lattices. Electron-hole pairs anyone???

    overall, yes they are smaller, but they might "seem" bigger when you try to localize them
    note: I havent number crunched deltaX in HUP, so maybe deltaX is smaller than an atom, but H atom is pretty small right. also, get in a vacuum and you've got apretty long mean free path.

    12/12 ^^^ the questions were sorta grade-school so it was easy to infer that they wanted grade-school answers.

    Missed the stem cells one. Thought I had always heard one of the other choices.
