How many galaxies can you see? This week's Silicon Tally

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has snapped the best ever image of the Antennae Galaxies. Hubble has released images of these stunning galaxies twice before, once using observations from its Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) in 1997, and again in 2006 from the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS). Each of Hubble’s images of the Antennae Galaxies has been better than the last, due to upgrades made during the famous servicing missions, the last of which took place in 2009.

3 hours. 20-50 photos. 50 students. 11 percent. 7 billionaires. 3 galaxies. 4 flavors. The numbers mean it's time for Silicon Tally again, Marketplace Tech's weekly quiz. This week, Ben puts columnist and maker of hilarious pie charts for The Hairpin Ann Friedman to the test.  You can play along below. Click the audio player above to hear how Ann did.
