There is a question that states "Modern country where it was discovered" which is supposed to follow a question, but since they appear in a random order it doesn't appear in the right context.

A common trend with these quizzes is that I’m realizing how little I actually know about space lol. I got a modest 7 (8 if I actually remembered it’s phosphorus not phosphate). I had fun!

For me the randomizer doesn't work. I think all possible questions show up (over 100). I know a bit about space, but it seems a bit too challenging to answer everything with not even 2 seconds per question.

Planet WHOSE orbit crosses, not WHO'S.

Also, lose the questions that aren't actually solar system questions.
