Week 18 – Challenge 2 – Comet
Challenge page : http://www.ancientsocieties.com/comet/
The Challenge text says The earth spins and life is short
The bottom left date 15-10-2013, the name of the challenge comet, and a Google images search help to find the picture shows ISON comet.
We have a 4 letters word ISON and 4 numbers at the bottom right of the picture 20-22-20-00
Life is short… A short word ?
Let’s make a basic cypher : Caesar rotate (SPIN like said in the challenge text) on the letters using the bottom right values to rotate each letter :
I ROT 20 gives C
S ROT 22 gives O
O ROT 20 gives I
N ROT 00 gives N (no change)
The answer is COIN
