Do Americans know their science? The results are in from a new National Science Foundation survey that assessed our knowledge of basic biology, chemistry, astronomy, geology, and physics -- and they don't look promising.

The survey shows that an alarming number of Americans think astrology has a foundation in science (it doesn't). And too many of us don't know what determines a baby's sex or the correct answer to the simple true-or-false question "The universe began with a huge explosion."

Yikes.
