It was to easy. Mr. Green though I'm not knowed that sputnik was first thing what we sent to outer space. I knowed that it was first thing what we send to orbit, but...

i checked the definition of "outer space" and i think that sputnik really was in outer space, cause IMHO orbit (even low orbit) is outer space...

My question is what was the longest war in history?

hmmm, dont know how its called in english, but in slovak its "storočná vojna" and it means "war that lasted one hundred years". it was the war between england and france, dont know the year. something above 1300...

Gill, you're right. The longest war in history is between England and France from 1337 to 1453, thus lasting 116 years.

This is what I found on net.

The oldest countries include:

San Marino (301 AD)
France (486 AD)
Bulgaria (632 AD)
Denmark (950 AD)
Portugal (1143 AD)
Andorra (1278 AD)
Switzerland (1291 AD)


Here is some information about San Marino: The third smallest state in Europe (after the Holy See and Monaco) also claims to be the world's oldest republic. According to tradition, it was founded by a Christian stonemason named Marino in 301 A.D. San Marino's foreign policy is aligned with that of Italy. Social and political trends in the republic also track closely with those of its larger neighbor.

I also never heard about it before. This is what I found.

For 715 years, from 1278 to 1993, Andorrans lived under a unique co-principality, ruled by French and Spanish leaders (from 1607 onward, the French chief of state and the Spanish bishop of Urgel). In 1993, this feudal system was modified with the titular heads of state retained, but the government transformed into a parliamentary democracy. Long isolated and impoverished, mountainous Andorra achieved considerable prosperity since World War II through its tourist industry. Many immigrants (legal and illegal) are attracted to the thriving economy with its lack of income taxes.

Correct :!: His name is Tutankhamen. He became a pharaoh when he was 9. Unfortunatetly, he died so early only when he was 18 because of illness.

Alexander Graham Bell invented television in 1876, didn't he? (The year is easy to remember). But I also heard that the first inventor who invented television set was another one. I'm not sure yet. Anyway, I don't know what it was called. :roll:
