This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing.  You are invited to participate with the opening question.

Brain Teaser Question

There are four people in a line.  Sarah is between Barry and Mary.  Mary is in front of two other people, and John is directly in front of Mary.  Who is first in line, second, third, and fourth?

(answer found at the end of this post)

Featured Facts

The American space program is looking toward future manned flights to the moon after nearly 50 years since the last NASA mission.  

Many people can recall when the first time human steps touched the lunar surface.  On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 was launched with astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins aboard.

Days later, Armstrong and Aldrin landed the lunar module, named “Eagle,” on the moon’s surface.  The landing did not go quite according to plan, but the two astronauts made manual adjustments as they descended.

Both of the moon walkers left footprints on the lunar surface.  These will remain visible indefinitely because of the moon’s lack of wind.

Answer to Brain Teaser Question

From first to last:  John, Mary, Sarah, Barry,  Hint:  Look at the statement that gives the most direct information.  It is the last statement:  “John is directly in front of Mary.”

  1. another fun brain teaser; I actually used the fact that Mary was in front of two people to place her in the second position.

    and I guess I had forgotten that those footprints would always be on the moon. what a cool legacy to leave!
