The correct answer is Hydrogen.

Hydrogen is not created by stars, it is used by them. Uranium and gold are created through supernovae explosions. A neutrino is not an element, it is a particle.

Oh Oh, another tricky one.

Apollo 11 was the mission that landed on the Moon, However Apollo 8 was the first manned flight to the moon and Apollo 10 was the secound and also the test flight for the lunar lander module - get within 20mtrs of the meen's surface - if I remeber correctly.

On the fifth day of the mission, Astronauts Thomas P. Stafford and Eugene A. Cernan descended in the lunar module to an altitude of less than 47,000 feet (14,326 meters) above the Moon. At this altitude, two passes were made over the future Apollo 11 landing site. The LM then completed a successful rendezvous with Astronaut John W. Young in the command module.

Well I think Van Gough, because he suffered from depression (or something). So I could see him saying such a thing. :hmm:

Metoer showers are the debris of Comets that crosses Earth's ordbit. - or is Earth Orbit's crossing the debris field left behind but in the orbit path of comets. Either way I supposed the correct answer is really Comets and the Earth's Orbit.
