What did I find astonishing?

Soul of Science copy

Did you know that 25% of Americans do not know that the earth orbits the sun?  This finding is from a recent NSF survey on scientific literacy.

Ref: Discovery News via Maggie’s Farm.

I could not find that survey, but I did find this one from the PEW Research Center.

How did you do?


  1. Kikced it’s but! Woot!

    • Hypergenius.

  2. Well… since you asked: “You scored better than 93% of the public and the same as 7%.” That means I was in the highest graded category. Does that make me smart?

    I don’t think so. 😉

    • I am not surprised at your high score – and I am gratified that my friends all seem to be so literate in the sciences!
