QUIZ!

Simple, I ask a question, whoever gets it right asks the next one ans so on...

Like the name that plane game, after 5 wrong guesses, a tip is given.

(Q1) What was the first Fully reusable spacecraft.

I think it was the X-15. Wikipedia confirms my presumption of it being a spacecraft. Dunno if there was anything earlier though.

Define "fully". I don't know that anyone would want to fly the X-15 without some replacement parts...

hmm not sure about this "game" idea. Unlike the name that plane game, it can potentially be subjective and will most likely become constantly sidetracked as it leads to disputes.

This does seem likely. If anything is prone to argument it's stuff like this.
