STRANDED ON THE LIGHT SIDE OF THE MOON

SITUATION
You are a member of a space crew originally scheduled to rendezvous with the mother ship on the lighted surface of the moon. Due to mechanical difficulties, however, your ship was forced to land at a spot some 200 miles from the rendezvous point. During landing, much of the equipment aboard is damaged. Since survival depends on reaching the mother ship,

the most critical items available must be chosen for the 200 mile trip. Below are listed the 15 items left intact and undamaged after landing.

Your mission, and task (should you accept it) is to rank them in order they will be needed to reach the rendezvous point. Place the number 1 by the most important item, the number 2 by the second most important, and so on, through to 15, the least important.
You do this twice: alone (5 min.) and once as a group (10 min.) IMPORTANT: Do not change your answers in Column 1 during the group discussion.

Think Carefully (Lives depend on you)
