Space quiz results

I'm a little disappointed so few people attempted my ultra-hard space quiz. Granted, it was exceedingly difficult, but hardly impossible. Oh well. Here are the answers:

1) Four people elected to Congress have travelled in space: Jake Garn, John Glenn, Bill Nelson, and Jack Swigert. Garn and Nelson were Members of Congress first; they both served as payload specialists on space shuttle misions. Swigert was elected to Congress after going into space on Apollo 13, but died before taking office.

2) Astronaut David Hilmers and I both graduated from Cornell College.

So who won? Technically no one. My sister came closest, but she missed Garn. But what the heck, I'll give her a prize anyway.
