How much do you know about space?

Space, no not the empty cupboard or the bar on your keyboard, I mean outer space the one with planets, stars and galaxies. In this quiz you will be focusing more on the side of rockets and exploration.

This quiz is just about space but has a question that you probably think should not be here but in my opinion should be. It is about the V2 rocket, lots of people will find this quiz hard.
