In 1976, the veterans of foreign wars in Norfolk, Ohio, created a 77-foot-long U.S. flag that takes the strength of 20 people to raise!

Big Dog, a 4-legged robot under development for the U.S. military, can maintain its balance across uneven terrain and keep standing despite a swift kick to the side!

Jupiter's great red spot, a high-pressure storm as wide as 3 earths, has been raging as long as telescopes have watched the skies --- nearly 350 years!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) How many people do you need to raise the 77-foot-long U.S. flag?

(2) Can the robot keep standing while kicking swiftly to the side?

(3) How long ago was Jupiter's great red spot watched first?
