Winning a World View

Another ongoing and popular game at is “Where in the World?”

In this two-part game, Web site visitors try to solve an online slide puzzle to see one of the latest pictures beamed down from Genesis I. The challenge doesn’t end there. The user then needs to figure out just where on Earth Genesis I was flying over when the picture was taken based upon land features and other landmarks seen in the photo. The first visitor to submit the correct answer is recognized on the Web site. The latest Where in the World? winner — Robert Gutowski — has been announced at

Have a Happy Holiday

As a holiday gift, this is one of the latest hi-res images from Genesis I. Seen below the orbiting pathfinder space habitat, one can see Lake Mead and the Las Vegas area at the center of the picture, and make out the coastline of Los Angeles and Catalina Island in the upper right.
