Sydney to host next clue in Vista space race

If you've ever dreamed of blasting into space like an astronaut you might want to keep your eye on Manly in Sydney on Sunday, where the next clue for an out-of-this-world prize will be revealed.

If you've ever dreamed of blasting into space like an astronaut, you might want to keep your eye on Manly in Sydney on Sunday, January 14, where the next clue for an out-of-this-world prize will be revealed.

At 8am (AEST) the beachside North Steyne Park in Manly is tipped to be the scene of the next clue in Microsoft's Vanishing Point online game. Open to anyone around the world, the game's top prize is a sub-orbital space ride guided by a NASA-trained astronaut.

Several web sites such as The Vanishing Point Wiki have been created to share the clues and tips.

The first clues in the game were projected onto the fountains of the Bellagio Casino as part of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

Vanishing Point was created to promote the Windows Vista operating system.
