Contest 280: Power Gene

Scientists have discovered that women are genetically more complex than previously thought, while men, with their underperforming "Y" chromosome, are more simple. To celebrate, the scientists flew to a rock in Antarctica near Victor Bay.

Name the rock.

Deadline for Contest 280 entries is Friday, April 1, at 10 a.m. Send entries by e-mail (travtrivia@ washpost.com; put "ETT No. 280" in subject field); fax (202-912- 3609); or U.S. mail (postcards only) to Extreme Travel Trivia, Washington Post Travel Section, 1150 15th St. NW, Washington, D.C. 20071). One entry per person. Winner chosen at random from correct entries.


In Contest 278, when aviator Steve Fossett lost fuel during his nonstop flight around the world, he anticipated making an emergency landing on an island south of Solo island in the Fijis. Congratulations to Kim Scudera of Herndon, who wins a Travel section mousepad for discovering Ono.
