Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Our first traveler is a 175 pound man making a short trip to the Moon. Which of these things would be closest to his weight there?

At 29 pounds, our traveler weighs about the same as a pit bull. A grey kangaroo weighs about 100 pounds. The Moon's gravity is about 1/6th that of Earth's.
2. Off to Venus! This traveler, on Earth, is the original 98 pound weakling. On Venus, what would he be called?

Often referred to as "Earth's twin" Venus is only a little smaller than the Earth.

Its gravity is 91% of the Earth's.
3. Now we're going to Pluto, which once was a planet. An average six year old boy would weigh the same on Pluto as which of these?

On tiny Pluto, which has a gravitational pull that's just six percent of the Earth's, a 50 pound boy would weigh 3.3 pounds.
4. A 120 pound woman takes a break from FunTrivia to journey to the second largest moon in the solar system, Titan. After taking a moment to admire Saturn's rings, she hops on a scale and finds out she weighs about the same as which of these?

At a bit more than 14 pounds, she would weigh on the high end for a woman's bowling ball and the low end for a man's. Titan's gravity is around 1/10th of the Earth's.
5. Now, a 250 pound man is off to mighty Jupiter. What animal would he be closest to in weight on that planet?

Weighing in at 650 pounds, a tiger is the closest answer. A great white shark weighs about 5,000 pounds, a giraffe some 2,600 pounds, and a blue whale can come in at over 200 tons! Jupiter's gravity is about two and a third gs greater than Earth's.
6. An average size sumo wrestler has decided to take in the scenery on the Sun. He goes at night so he won't burn his feet. He finds his weight is now about the same as what?

Answer: A 30 foot travel trailer

An average size for a sumo wrestler is about 325 pounds. On the Sun, that would work out to 8,800 pounds. 100 cases of beer would weigh about 2,000 pounds, and a 747 can range anywhere from 735,000 to 970,000 pounds, depending on the model. Gravity on the Sun is 28 times greater than the Earth's.
7. Our 150 pound basketball player is taking a break from her game to visit the most volcanically active body in the solar system, Jupiter's moon Io. To what would her weight there be closest?

It doesn't look so heavy, but a standard gold bar weighs in at 27 and a half pounds. Io has a gravitational pull about 18% of the Earth's.
8. An NFL lineman weighing 300 pounds is off to the location in the solar system where his weight would be the closest to his weight on Earth. Where is he?

It's hard to believe, but the second largest planet has a gravity field closest to that of Earth's. Saturn is the least dense planet, so there's not much mass there. The Earth's gravity is 1 g, Saturn's is 1.06 g.
9. There's only one dwarf planet in the inner solar system, and our 255 pound accountant steps away from his desk to take a gander at Ceres. He feels light on his feet, in fact, as light as which of these?
