This name may help you getting closer to the answer. In other words this is NOT AN ANSWER
Also please justify your answer completely on the basis of what have been said in the puzzle.
i saw the same puzzle's on this dude ankur's blog, so askedOriginally Posted by amit82cse
and i know the answer but wont say
smithson tennant! kudos to dactur!!
made it hell lot easier for me .. i admit .. i wouldnt have come close if doc had not helped .. .right. .
smithson tennant, born 1761, in selby yorkshire ... now as the puzzle goes .. a tennant discovered me and made history ,,
tennant discovered many things .. 1) diamond is composed of carbon 2) iridium adn 3) element osmium ..
now answer is any one of these ... which one?? no idea .. but still working
good .. made some headway .. puzzle goes. . "borrowed my number" .. could this be the atomic number? avagadros number? what else "number" can we associate with tennant's discoveries?
byt the way carbon=6 osmium=76 and iridium=77 (courtesy of google .. i am rubbish at chem)
no cant be the elements ... none of these go around the earth .. did tennant alos discovered some celestial objects?
@shak...dude..i love your progress
you better not say that!Originally Posted by CrYpTiC_angel
send me the url to the site via PM so that i can make sure that next riddle will not collide
ok .. shak n doc .. really inspired me .. check this .. http://kb.iu.edu/data/afmc.html .. Fortran is a high level lang which "formulates n translates" .. version 77!!!!!! .. atomic no of Iridium 77 .. SHAK .. Celestial objects .. goin round da earth .. but not tennant .. but again .. After Fortran - Project by IBM .. i searched for IBM projects related to space .. n Iridium was a sattelite project by IBM http://www.findarticles.com/p/articl...11/ai_55938906..
Dammit .. it is IRIDIUM .. Yes . it is
Break da ICE!!! .. look at this .. http://www.sandm.co.uk/simon/comjour...eks/geeks.html
Read it carefully Again da number "77" .. there were gonna be 77 satellites .. but Iridium project has only 66 successful .. and 66 is one number short of da devil 666 i.e missed da devil by one .. bring on da next one (though i still didn't get da last line )
Great notty! IRIDIUM is a right answer.
wow guys...you are now picking up the speed.
@notty, were you able to relate following lines with your answer?
I missed the devil by one over the boundary
called earth and left everyone in quandary
good notty devil's number is resolved!
of course i related da line I missed da devil .... 66 satellites were successful .. n 666 is da devil's no. .. so missed 666 by one right ? .. 66 ?? i think over the boundary is juz to confuse .. n didn't get da last line .. but everything else proves its Iridium so i don't think after spending "CONTINUOUS HALF HOUR" over it .. i have da energy to relate da last line phew
Here is the last line...
"Calling planet earth" tag line for Iridium project.
reps : can't give need to spread little more some points though!
notty does not seem to have much energy left to try next one but those who are ON can take this one....
