Spaceflight is an effort, in a lecture/article format, to describe the components of a spaceflight, often as applied in the performance of lofting technology.

You are free to take this quiz based on the lecture/article spaceflight at any time.

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, and in the {{repellor vehicle}} resources template. This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.

A suggestion is to have the lecture available in a separate window.

To master the information and use only your memory while taking the quiz, try rewriting the information from more familiar points of view, or be creative with association.

Enjoy learning by doing!


Point added for a correct answer:   
Points for a wrong answer:
Ignore the questions' coefficients:

1 Yes or No, Manned spaceflight on an individual basis has only been achieved with experimental aircraft such as the X-15.


2 Multiple choice, What are some factors that can influence launch windows?

position of celestial bodies relative to launch site
accessibility to liquid oxygen
position of orbits relative to launch site
local weather

3 True or False, A dominant group for a spaceflight differs from a control group in that it rules the treatment of the control group.


4 Evidence that demonstrates that a model or idea for a spaceflight versus a control group is feasible is called a


5 True or False, A control group may be used for a spaceflight to demonstrate no effect or a standard effect versus a novel effort applied to a treatment group.


6 Complete the text:

A short or realization of a certain or idea to a treament's feasibility for a spaceflight is called a proof of .

7 True or False, A pure spaceflight involves no doing apart from itself.


8 Complete the text:

A proof-of-concept structure of a spaceflight, including a control group, consists of , procedures, findings, and .

9 Multiple choice, What, if any, is the difference between a launch pad and a spaceport?

a launchpad can only launch vehicles vertically
liquid feuled rockets only
a spaceport has a runway for horizontal landings and/or takeoffs
Titan IIIC
a launchpad is design for reaching extreme altitudes

10 True or False, The purpose of a treatment group for a spaceflight is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.


11 Multiple choice, What was the topic of the paper Robert H. Goddard published in 1919 which influenced Herman Oberth and Wernher Von Braun?

liquid feuled rockets
application of the de Laval Nozzle
Vanguard 1
reaching extreme altitudes

12 True or False, A spaceflight above the Earth is more a flight through the interplanetary medium than it is through space.


13 Multiple choice, What was the name of the first satellite to orbit the Earth?

Vanguard 1

14 Yes or No, "Flyings" could vary considerably in complexity and lavishness and could involve an actor or property being either lifted from the stage into the flies above or vice versa.


15 Multiple choice, Spaceflight was first achieved in what year?
