Here it is:
Gizmo # 51 [siternetusa.com] (corrected - it is quiz #51 - could a moderator change the title?)

What is it exactly?
What does it do?

>Is the cutaway chamber sealed?
The gizmo only operates when it is attached to someting, it would not work by itself. So, the chamber is sealed when it is operating.

is something frozen involved?
yes, in a way

is it some type of Vacuum chamber?
it is not a chamber, but you are on the right track.

let me rephrase that, it is not a chamber, but you could say it has a chamber.

cryogenic pump

A vacuum pump in which pressure is reduced by condensing gases on surfaces maintained at about 20 K by means of liquid hydrogen or at 4 K by means of liquid helium. Pressures down to 10-8 mmHg (10-6 Pa) can be maintained; if they are used in conjunction with a diffusion pump, pressures as low as 10-15 mmHg (10-13 Pa) can be reached.

Well, I am not sure who won. Coconutz was the first to guess Cryopump, but 4crests supplied the URL

coconutz, thanks for making my job easy.

What do the rules say? Does the winner have to have the correct picture/url with pic?

I was on the Cryo stuff too for about a half hour before. I didn't find it until the PUMP hint.

What is it exactly?
What does it do?

If you asked me, I'd give the win to jatar_k for answering both of the original questions (msg #79).

Now that I think of it, the person that had it all right first was jatar_k

Does getting the URL without saying what it is, constitutes an answer?

In my opinion jatar_k is the winner.
Sorry 4crests and coconutz, you lost on a technicality.

I think the rules for the quiz should be clarified.
For example:
Are we allowed to ask more than one question?
Is the URL of the gizmo picture required for the win?
