Edwin Hubble

Answer: The Hubble Space Telescope is a space telescope that was launched into low Earth orbit in 1990, and remains in operation. It has recorded some of the most detailed visible light images, allowing a deep view into space. Many Hubble observations have led to breakthroughs in astrophysics, such as determining the rate of expansion of the universe. The telescope is named after the astronomer Edwin Hubble. Edwin Hubble was an astronomer who played a crucial role in establishing the fields of extragalactic astronomy and observational cosmology and is regarded as one of the most important astronomers of all time.

Lincoln

Answer: Abraham Lincoln was an accomplished wrestler who was inducted into the Wrestling Hall of Fame in 1992. The Great Emancipator wasn’t quite WWE material, but thanks to his long limbs he was an accomplished wrestler as a young man. Defeated only once in approximately 300 matches, Lincoln reportedly talked a little smack in the ring. Honest Abe once challenged an entire crowd of onlookers after dispatching an opponent: “I’m the big buck of this lick. If any of you want to try it, come on and whet your horns.” There were no takers. Lincoln’s grappling exploits earned him an “Outstanding American” honor in the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

COCA COLA

Answer: In 1887, Coca-Cola distributed what is widely agreed to be the very first coupon, for one free glass of Coca-Cola, then priced at five cents. The coupons were mailed to homes across the country, handed out on the street by Coca-Cola salesmen, and placed inside magazines. It is estimated that between 1894 and 1913, more than 8.5 million coupons were redeemed at soda fountains nationwide and Coca-Cola and the “coupon” become household names. The coupon helped transform Coca-Cola from an insignificant tonic into a market-dominating drink.

Which of these body parts can only be found on humans?

Chins

Answer: Chins are something uniquely human. Big, small and sometimes dimpled, everyone has a chin. While it may seem odd, humans are in fact the only animals that have one. Gorillas don't have them. Chimpanzees don't have them. Even the Neanderthal, our nearest evolutionary relative, didn’t have chins —their faces simply ended in a flat vertical plane. The bony nub that juts out from the bottom of the lower jaw is unique in the animal kingdom, and although scientists have proposed several theories over the years as to why, the chin remains a mystery.
