Our good friends at Google run a daily puzzle challenge and asked us to help get them out to the geeky masses. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. Each morning at 12:01 a.m. Eastern time you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here.

As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS!

Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience.

And now, without further ado, we give you…


Molecules of the third most abundant element in the universe were recently discovered in a star-forming region of which nebula?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

The key idea here is “sing harmony with themselves” or recording and re-recording multiple times. A search for [ sing harmony with themselves ] will show results that use the word “overdubbing” in the title. Doing the query [ define:overdubbing] will give you an exact definition of overdubbing.
