Note: I lightened up this image in Photoshop slightly because the original image in Google Earth was very dark and the features were hard to see. The image is also has more grain that usual because of the resolution of the satellite image.
First, let me say if you haven’t upgraded your copy Google Earth lately, you should do so. The newest version has greatly improved navigation. It also does a lot of little simple things easier if you work with KML files. (Speaking of which, if you haven’t, you should download my custom layer I’ve built for my trip around the world). Also, if you want to have instant notification of when a new contest is up, you can follow me on Twitter. New posts go out to Twitter instantly.
Contest #34 turned out to be pretty easy. The correct answer is Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This is the primary launch site for the Space Shuttle and was where Apollo 11 left to go to the moon. This was probably easier than picking the spot in the ocean where they landed.
