Skylab Trivia: Week 4

This month’s trivia is all Skylab. This orbital outpost, a precursor to the International Space Station, served as a laboratory for astronauts to study the effects of microgravity on the human body and perform complex science experiments in space. Test your Skylab knowledge below and check back next week for more Skylab trivia!

Where did the Skylab wreckage fall following re-entry?

Skylab
Correct! Wrong!

After more than six years in space, on July 11, 1979, Skylab re-entered Earth's atmosphere. While the majority of Skylab burned up upon re-entry, some Skylab fragments fell into the Indian Ocean and over Australia. The wreckage fell near the Australian town of Esperance. Luckily, no one was injured. Fragments were recovered and put on display at several museums. An authentic Skylab fragment can also be found in our Starship Gallery. Guests may gaze upon a piece of America's first space station. Learn more about Skylab here and check back next week for another space trivia question!
