Nasa.gov is a pretty big domain if you ask me, so I guess this is where the website of your own comes in handy. (However, me and my partner didn't put a single thing on our website last year and still got first. Go figure.)

I wonder if they'll be running Windows 7 at the competitions...

like the graph, the short answer, and anything else they ask this year. so you're pretty much right. :idea:
Well you don't have to find everything on the site. You could find the answer on another site and the search the answer in the domain you're supposed to find it on. Could be a waste of time but as a last resort one could try it.

:?: The rules limit you to a certain domain, but that domain is usually pretty large (NASA, USGS). You're allowed to use anything on the web that doesn't involve communicating with someone else. The website of your own is to organize links and make it easier to access information.

The rules are pretty unclear on what websites we are allowed to use. Here's my understanding:

We can use ANY website we want, but when they compare OUR answers to the RIGHT answers, the RIGHT answer will be whatever nasa.gov says.
Is this right :?:

Correct. The thing is, all of the answers can be found on nasa.gov, but in case you can't find it there, you are allowed to search the web.

Does anyone know of any practice tests? I'm running out of them, and State is still a while a way.
