Science Quiz

I'm trying to decide what is the most disturbing result from this science quiz. I think I'll have to go with more than half of the respondents saying that a LASER is made of sound waves. This means that rats pushing random buttons would have scored better on that question.

There is a phenomenon, called sonoluminescence, where sound waves can cause tiny bubbles to emit light. Although neat, it's still not a laser.

What bugs me even more is that less than 50% of the respondents knew that electrons are smaller than atoms.
