Test Your Optical IQ With VM’s Weekly News Quiz

Since many of us have been cooped up since mid-March, our screen time has skyrocketed. Keeping up with the news, staying in touch with friends and family, and getting our jobs done has resulted in a LOT of time online. But sometimes being online can provide the perfect escape from the harsh realities of the world—it’s a place we go to for a break in the action, to forget about life for a little while. The Editors here at VMAIL Weekend thought it might be fun for our readers to test their knowledge about current events in the optical world. So for a lighter look at the news, click here to take VM’s Weekly News Quiz. Going forward, it will be a regular department in our Weekend Edition. Happy Quizzing.
