Which animal was used in coal mines as a safety measure?

 

6 hours ago, dgrimm60 said:

CANARY

Answer: Canaries were regularly used in coal mining as an early warning system. If dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide collected in the mine, the gases would kill the canary before killing the miners, thus providing a warning to exit the tunnels immediately. Why use a bird instead of, say, a mouse? It all had to do with the birds’ breathing anatomy: canaries get a dose of air when they inhale and when they exhale, thus a double dose of toxic gases. The phrase "canary in a coal mine" is frequently used to refer to a person or thing which serves as an early warning of a coming crisis.

CHARIOTS  OF  FIRE

Answer: Chariots of Fire is a 1981 British historical drama film. It tells the fact-based story of two athletes in the 1924 Olympics: Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God, and Harold Abrahams, an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice. It was nominated for seven Academy Awards and won four, including Best Picture. It is ranked 19th in the British Film Institute's list of Top 100 British films. The film is also notable for its memorable electronic theme tune by Vangelis, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Score.

What color is an airplane's "black box" flight recorder?

Orange

ORANGE

Answer: A flight recorder is an electronic recording device placed in an aircraft for the purpose of facilitating the investigation of aviation accidents and incidents. Although they are called "black boxes," aviation recorders are actually painted bright orange. This distinct color, along with the strips of reflective tape attached to the recorders' exteriors, help investigators locate the black boxes following an accident. “Black boxes” are most commonly installed in the rear of the aircraft where they are more likely to survive the impact of a crash. They have been required in commercial aircraft in the U.S. since 1967.

Adopted in 1968, who is NASA’s official safety mascot?

Snoopy

PHKRAUSE

 the  answer  is  SNOOPY

dgrimm60

Answer: After the Apollo 1 fire, NASA needed to rebuild its devastated Apollo program. They approached Charles Schulz, creator of Peanuts, for permission to use Snoopy as their mascot for safety. Shultz agreed, and granted NASA permission. Starting in 1968, a Silver Snoopy metal pin hitched a ride with every astronaut. In 1969, Apollo 10 selected Snoopy as their official mascot, petting his nose for luck before launch. The flight modules took on names of Peanuts characters, with Charlie Brown as the Command Service Module, and Snoopy as the Lunar Module.
