SDC Trivia Game #411 - 10/07/2024

Question 1: Why was the Gutenberg printing press so revolutionary?

The Gutenberg printing press, invented by Johannes Gutenberg in the 15th century, was revolutionary because it introduced mechanical movable type printing to Europe, which allowed for the mass production of books and the rapid dissemination of knowledge. This greatly increased literacy and access to information across Europe.


Question 2: What major invention did Alexander Graham Bell patent in 1876?

Alexander Graham Bell patented the first practical telephone in 1876. His invention revolutionized long-distance communication and laid the foundation for modern telecommunication systems.


Question 3: How old was Elvis Presley when he died?

Elvis Presley, often referred to as "The King of Rock and Roll", died on August 16, 1977, at the age of 42. His death was attributed to a heart attack, likely brought on by years of prescription drug abuse and an unhealthy lifestyle.



Question 4: In which layer of the Earth's atmosphere does the ozone layer reside?

The ozone layer, which helps protect life on Earth from the sun's ultraviolet radiation, is found in the stratosphere. The stratosphere is the second layer of Earth's atmosphere, located above the troposphere and below the mesosphere.


Question 5: What was the first satellite launched into orbit?

Sputnik 1 was the first artificial Earth satellite, launched by the Soviet Union on October 4, 1957. This marked the start of the space age and triggered the space race between the United States and the Soviet Union.


Question 6: How many paintings did Vincent van Gogh sell in his lifetime?

Despite being one of the most famous and influential artists today, Vincent van Gogh struggled to find success during his lifetime. He only sold one painting, "The Red Vineyard at Arles," which was bought by the Belgian painter and collector Anna Boch.


Question 7: When did the first Peanuts comic strip by Charles Schulz appear?

The first Peanuts comic strip was published on October 2, 1950 in seven newspapers. It featured Charlie Brown walking by two other young children, Shermy and Patty. Snoopy was also an early character in the comic, although his early appearances were much different compared to his iconic look and personality that would be developed later.



Question 8: If you weigh 150 pounds on Earth, how much would you weigh on Mars?

Mars has a much lower gravity than Earth, approximately 38% of Earth's gravity. This means that a 150-pound person on Earth would weigh around 57 pounds on Mars.


Question 9: In what part of the plant does photosynthesis primarily take place?

Photosynthesis primarily takes place in the leaves of plants, where specialized structures called chloroplasts contain chlorophyll, a green pigment that absorbs sunlight. The energy from sunlight is used to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose, which the plant uses for growth and energy.


Question 10: Where do diamonds form deep within the Earth?

Diamonds form deep within the Earth's mantle, typically at depths of 90 to 150 kilometers, under high pressure and temperature conditions. They are brought to the surface through volcanic eruptions via magma, which cools into igneous rocks known as kimberlites and lamproites.
