News question: Know your spacecrafts?

Quiz time; another chance to shine!

Fermilab News at Work would like to congratulate Christine Ader for winning last week’s quiz! The answer was: LSST will send out 10 million alerts per night. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Once again, the first lab employee or user to submit the correct answer to the question will be featured in next week’s quiz and will receive a small token of recognition.

This week’s question is:

If the Voyager spacecrafts were headed in the direction of our nearest star, how long would it take them to reach Alpha Centauri? Hint: See 2014 MU69 update.

Send your answer to news@fnal.gov by today, Feb. 28, at 4 p.m.

Good luck! We will announce the winner and answer next week.
