Today’s Trivia




Welcome to Daily Trivia. There is a game to play here. The photo above relates to one of the items below. The first reader to correctly tell us in the comments what item the photo belongs to, and why, gets bragging rights. Sometimes they are obvious, other times the obvious answer is the decoy. Can you figure it out tonight?

Tonight’s Trivia is brought to you by one of the team. So you know it’s going to be tough. I’ll leave it without any clues for a start…

    13 is a prime number, and prime numbers were used for the length and width of the SETI Arecibo message, to make it obvious to other races with non-decimal mathematics how to interpret the message (Link to #1). For a very clever book on almost first encounters, read “Encounter with Tiber” by Buzz Aldrin and John Barnes.
