    Yay 12. The asteroid/comet one wasn't obvious at all though so I'm not surprised that such a low percentage got them all right.

    12/12!

    But I really had to think about the boiling water one. I guessed some bs logic for that one. I thought that at higher altitudes air pressure was lower so it'd take less energy for the water to evaporate. Can someone explain that one for me?
    Exactly that. Higher altittude = lower pressure. At low pressure water boils has a lower boiling point. Water will boil when the vapor pressure is equal to the atmospheric. You can think of it this way, if there is a higher applied atmospheric pressure, there is a higher force being applied to the water pushing the molecules together and not allowing them to expand into a gas.

    8/12, I'm not good at General knowledge tbh, you should see me try to answer questions when watching the chase.

    10/12. Got the boiling water temp and vaccine ones wrong. Honestly didn't know the water one but vaccine one knew once I'd clicked it I'd picked the wrong one (Curie).
