How to Play
In the Middle Ages alchemy was mixed with astrology, so alchemists named some of the elements then known after one of the seven planets then known. Remember that before Copernicus a "planet" was a heavenly body that was believed to orbit around the Earth (and that included the Sun). I know this quiz falls somewhere between science and pseudoscience, but I think it can be interesting.
