MISR Where on Earth? Quiz 29

June 21st, 2017 by Mike Carlowicz

Each month, we try to stump you with a new EO Puzzler. If you missed the latest one, or if you just want more challenges, we have a new one from our colleagues at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

The science and outreach team from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) is inviting you to become a geographical detective and solve their latest mystery quiz. But this is more than just a “where is this place?” kind of quiz. You need to know some history — natural and human — to correctly answer all of the questions. Check out the quiz — based on the image below — at

Quiz answers will be accepted on the MISR page through 4:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time on June 28.

    The question about the animals was unfair. I got it right, but there are at least 2 animals (according to what they asked in the question) that would fit the answer for the question. They should have allowed both answers. I got it right just by chance. They should have asked what NATIVE animal lives around the reef, rather than just asking what animals would be found around the reef.
