Road Trip Pic of the Day, 6/23: What is this?
If you are good at using search terms--or if you're just good at identifying photographs--you could win a prize in Wedneday's Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.
Update (Wednesday, 11:43 p.m. EST): The answer to today's challenge--which 66 people got--is mission control for the International Space Station at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. Congratulations to the winner, and for everyone, please be sure to come back for tomorrow's challenge.
This just looks like the epitome of geek heaven, doesn't it? Do you recognize it?
I'd be surprised if you--or many others--can identify what's in this picture without doing some research. But I'm also quite sure a lot of you will be able to figure out what this is a picture of--and where it's located--pretty easily once you apply a little brainpower. That's your task in Wednesday's Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge. If you're right, you could win a prize.
If you have those answers, please e-mail them to me no later than 6 p.m. Pacific time Wednesday (at daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com, including "Picture of the Day" in the subject line). I'll choose a winner at random from among everyone who sends in both pieces of the correct answer. Please forgive me if you don't hear from me if you're not the winner. I get dozens of responses each day.
Also, I've turned off comments because some people have been posting the correct answers there. I hate to shut down discussion, but I want you to figure out the answer on your own.
One caveat: no individual can win more than two prizes. But at the end of the trip, I'll be drawing a name from among all the daily challenge winners and giving out something a little more substantial.
On June 24, Geek Gestalt will kick off Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest and the Southeast over the last four years, I'll be looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more throughout the American northeast. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. In the meantime, you can follow my preparations for the project on Twitter @GreeterDan and @RoadTrip and find the project on Facebook.
