Trivial Hoot 17

It's been a long time since I've had a minute to blog. But here I am, on my first day off from the job in eleven days, and I'm suddenly just loaded with time. I've only had to field one call from work, read half a dozen emails, and attend one unscheduled conference call. Quite relaxing.

So, to celebrate all this leisure, I have decided that it is time for the return of The Question.

This is another of my favorite “odd man out” puzzles. Here is a list:

Eagle. Intrepid. Aquarius. Antares. Falcon. Orion. Challenger.

Okay then, one of these things is not like the others. Which one is it?

As always the first person to correctly respond receives a big invisible hoot and the honor of being named a Steely-Eyed Missile Man. Go for it, you smarty you.

Aquarius since it was the Lunar Module for Apollo 13 and re-entered the Earth's atmosphere. The others were either left behind or deliberately crashed into the moon's surface.

Yup, you got it. Aquarius was the Lunar Module for Apollo 13. The others listed all made it to the moon. Aquarius, of course, never landed. I hadn't thought of the fate of the lander, but that's quite true too. t4tudor, you are now a multiple missile man. Hoot!

It is an honor I have aspired to, but never dreamed I could acheive.
