A recent study of 2,000 British schoolchildren aged 6 to 12 revealed some rather sobering results. When posed a series of questions about historical figures and events, the children offered some surprising answers. Eleven percent, for example, thought Albert Einstein was the brother of Frankenstein and one in five of those children believed that the first person to walk on the moon was not, in fact, Neil Armstrong but rather fictional Disney character Buzz Lightyear.
