Thanks for playing Know Your City! Let’s review the questions.
- A jewel-box of a building capped by a silver dome, this place has been called ‘The Birthplace of American Astronomy.’ What is it?
- The Cincinnati Reds is a team that is near and dear to our hearts. But it wasn’t the first ball club formed in Cincinnati. What was the name of the first team?
- Before Cincy native Neil Armstrong and his crew left the moon for home during the Apollo 11 mission, they left quite a few objects behind to commemorate the mission. Can you name one of the most memorable objects?
And here are the answers:
- The Cincinnati Observatory, founded in 1843, is the oldest in the U.S. and boasts the oldest continually used astronomical telescope in the U.S.
- The Cincinnati Red Stockings—The ball club was formed in 1866 and broke a few records. In 1869, the red Stockings posted a perfect 67-0 record (against National Association of Base Ball Players clubs), prior to Major League baseball.
- In addition to their footprints, the crew left part of the landing module; mementos honoring fallen space explorers from the Apollo 1 mission; a silicon disc containing messages of goodwill from leaders in 73 countries; an American flag, and a collection of science experiments called the Early Apollo Scientific Experiment Package.
