Evil Tribbles may look cute, but they can really make a loud noise when they ROAR!!!

A 1-foot tall Green Evil Tribble can register 10 GSU (Galactic Sound Units) on a sound-measuring device that is 5 feet away. Yellow Evil Tribbles are twice as loud, and Red Tribbles... THREE times as loud as their yellow counterparts!

So anyway, one day Spork the Vulcan was out doing a bit of maintenance on the exterior of the Space Station, and before him he saw, to his fright, the biggest Evil Tribble he had ever seen. It was 5 feet high, 10 feet away and red! It looked straight at Spork, and gave the loudest ROAR it could!!!

How many GSU did Spork's sound-measuring device register?


0. The Tribble is on the outside of the Space Station and, because of the vacuum of space and the lack of air molecules to carry the sound, the GSU will not register a sound from 10 feet away.
