Round Britian Quiz.....clever quiz question

Anyone hear the program today?
When Apollo 15 landed on the moon, Commander David Scott did a gravity test with a Hammer and a feather.
The question was "What species of bird did the feather come from"

That's not the convoluted sort of answer I'd expect from Round Britain Quiz! Explanation please.

Re: Round Britian Quiz.....clever quiz question

Now done a bit of searching myself and found out why it was a falcons feather and I'm kicking myself for not guessing the reason. Bloomin' obvious!
