Okay, got my boarding passes printed

One more stab at this thing

lots of blatant clues about gravity, physics, relativity, Newton, and the other extremely famous guy must be either Maxwell, Bolzman, Einstein, Bohr, Dirac, Heisenberg, or Feynman.

Even time travel in Back to the Future is a clue. But what is that building? Does not look like Einstein territory.

Doc Brown in the original Back to the Future named his dog after a famous gravity guy. A guy on your list.

The guy planted a palm tree somewhere.

Consider the heritage of the extremely famous guy.

I'd sure like to know how wagga's initial clue, "Please Bee cryptic" relates to some dude's palm tree.

My guess is that it refered to the WZ's own Bee rather then being an actual clue as the guy with the palm tree definitely didn't say anything about the impact on the world if bees disappeared.

That was a kudo for Bee - her linear thinking solved the Ankerwyke Tree puzzle very quickly. Thought she might specialize in trees...

This has been posted before, but is well worth a second visit - and there are all the new folks, too.

That sent me waaay off the wrong trail.

So without any clues whatsoever, I'd appreciate Alan K revealing the thought processes he used to solve the puzzle. I'm clueless. confused

The first tree said "apple" to me, so I looked for images of the world's most famous apple tree (I am assuming that Eve ate some other fruit). Since that tree is related to a gravity guy and the other image was a palm, I looked for references to the other most famous gravity guy and palm trees. That did it.

Answer: What In The World Happened Here? LVII: (57)

Info on Isaac's tree here.

"Isaac Newton's Apple Tree is now on its third set of roots but still provides a good crop of apples each summer."

And the palm tree was apparently planted in 1923, not 1950.

The CNN picture.



Scroll through this article for some fascinating pictures.

Chaim Weizmann, Albert Einstein and their party traveled by ship and the two got to know each other. Weizmann supposedly remarked, "Every day he explained his theory to me, and now I am convinced that he understands it."

Man! All that first tree said to me was, "Old, sick and gnarly".

I guess I don't know apple trees.

I'm guessing that people would not be offended if offered a small hint.

I am glad the guy in the picture has his hard hat on.

No, but you might consider that for a WITWHH in the future...

I thought maybe it looked like a space shuttle engine, but can't find any pictures to match.

Well, then, it must have something to do with a really hot day at this place. Yes?


CORRECTION
oops, too hasty. That probably is not right. I need to make a pilgrimage.

And it's not an aircraft fuel tank - though that was the original plan. Sort of.

We already had the Mass Ave Bridge in a puzzle, so no need to re-visit that place. After all, the motto of its inhabitants is "IHTFP."
