9) Velox

It may have been known as a 14hp in some circles, but I'm sure the 'Velox' nametag was attached.

The '37 25hp model (these being Vauxhalls, of course) had a Willys body in Australia.

29. As Altitude says, but it was originally scheduled to go into orbit around Mars in October 2012


I think the October 2012 answer is the correct one.

Sorry Stu, that's down to me - I put 17 instead of 15 next to my answer, and you followed suit. Perhaps Ron won't mind if we now edit our posts. :blush:

Q 18 I found a different year for the BIG ROCK..?

I'm going by the Wikipedia entry - not the most reliable of sources, I know:

On 19 January 2029, 2005 YU55 will pass about 0.0023 AU (340,000 km; 210,000 mi) from Venus. The close approach to Venus in 2029 will determine how close the asteroid will pass the Earth in 2041. The uncertainties in the post-2029 trajectory will cause the asteroid to pass somewhere between 0.002 AU (300,000 km; 190,000 mi) and 0.003 AU (450,000 km; 280,000 mi) from the Earth in 2041. Radar astrometry in November 2011 should clarify the Earth encounter situation in 2041 and beyond. As of 7 November 2011, the nominal solution shows 2005 YU55 passing 0.1 AU (15,000,000 km; 9,300,000 mi) from the Earth on 12 November 2041.

:wave: As 24 Hours are up now,,and nobody else will stick their neck out..,
And all things being EQUAL ,I declare Tim and Altitude EQUAL on 13 Points Each.
.
Special mention for POLLY ,for standing by her man.

Arttidesco ,,3 Points gained while dashing in and out of Meetings
..
Wenoopy,,holding up his end with 3 Points.!!
.
E1pix......???????
Half a point for getting Q1 Half right ,plus Half a point for staying up
later than I was able to,,Giving him a whole point,,thereby avoiding
the necessity to change his Trading Name (and I hate to see a grown man cry )

And last but not least..David Mc Kinney...1 point (we know he can do more ,but he
is a very busy man )

Here Endeth Lesson 20,,and thank you all for coming.(I hope Tim will talk to me again.)
