    A Ford Capri. Either that or one of the voyagers.

    In fact, take it since I robbed you earlier. It's Helios II, at 70km/s.

    Interestingly a 40 year mission to our nearest neighbour star (40 years is reasonable to create a mission which can be designed, executed and the results studied within a human lifetime) would require speeds of 30,000km/s.

    Your go.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Helios II would still be faster at 252000 km/hour, wouldn't it? Or have I got the numbers wrong? I just took 70km/s, multiplied by 60 to get km/minute, then by 60 again.

    Yep, Voyager only travelled at 17km/s.

    Even common sense would suggest a block of metal fighting atmospheric friction and Earth's gravity would be trumped by a probe being pulled in by the sun over the vastness of space. So nur.

    Come on Pres! It's this sort of slow quizzing that makes you miss quizzing opportunities! 20 minutes already. I'm cancelling my subscription to your magazine.

    "A space probe that was not the Voyager probes, although those hold the record for travelling further than any other manmade object so far"

    Are we all just basing our guesses on "Black", or is that just me? :D

    I really wanted it to be Black, but it doesn't work for Mazzy (as far as I know).

    Big Black's Songs about Fucking is a great album btw :)

    Chill out Pres, it's just quizzing! A reasonable threshold is a good 20 minutes and MrTom has been... an hour? A WHOLE HOUR! I've never seen the likes of this kind of quiz hold-up since the great hold-up of '86.

    Now it has been two hours, that's just shamefully poor. I shall ask another question:

    Name three models of car (or jeepy thing or truck or other motorised transport) made by Lancia now or at any time in the past.

    The Lancia Delta was one.

    That's all I've got

    Edit: Also the Lancia Stratos, after Imamazed reminded me :)

    I will accept this. Since it was a group B rally car it was vastly different from the standard Delta, different enough to be its own thing.

    You could also have had the Alfa and Beta, if you wanted to continue the whole Greek letters theme.
