“Thank God it’s Friday’s test!” Every Friday there is a new quiz on IT, technology, entertainment or nerd topics:
The targets are getting smaller and the missions are becoming more exciting: space agencies are sending more and more space probes to asteroids and comets. Even the head of NASA, Bill Nelson, announced the fall of the asteroid.

There are various reasons for this: on the one hand, technical progress now allows very complex maneuvers to be performed on small celestial bodies.

For us, that’s reason enough to take you into space before a well-deserved weekend of analyzing asteroids, comets and their space probes in our test on Friday. Overall, it’s worth watching our #heiseshow as well as the reports on the last missions to prepare: This time too, Volker Zota and Malte Kirchner were mystified Three quiz questions in advance, choose the best answer and joke with the audience.
