1 - the moon
2 - little willie
3 - Gustave Eiffel - his company built eiffel tower and internal structure of statue of liberty
4 - kitty hawk, nc, america
5 - kiwi
6 - origins have been lost in history. 2 lines of thought are to show there were no weapons in the right hand, or to raise helmet visor
7 - knights in medieval world were all right handed (left handed people werent allowed to become knights) and the clockwise staircases made it easier to defend the castle
8 - guessing you mean Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov - better known as Lenin
9 - they're not in the same country. (unless you count moscow and moscow mills - then usa)
10 - antarctica
11 - Voskhod
