A Google-a-Day Puzzle for Thur., Oct. 13

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.

SPOILER WARNING:
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…

TODAY’S PUZZLE:

What term describes the transcendental feelings astronauts have after viewing Earth from the unique vantage point of space?

YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (mouseover to see):

Search [eight-track tape]. Look for an illustration of an open eight-track tape cartridge and notice that there’s only one reel of tape, which is both the supply and take-up reel.
