Write an essay, win a spaceflight

Today Audi and New Scientist magazine are kicking off a competition to award a suborbital spaceflight. The top prize will go to the person who submits the best essay (not to exceed 250 words) on what he or she considered to be the best patented invention of all time. (The space-related prize is designed to highlight that Audi, the German automaker, has more patents than NASA. But then, Audi has been around a lot longer than NASA.) Space Adventures is providing the flight in around 2009 on a vehicle to be named later. One catch: according to the rules, the competition is only open to UK residents aged 18 or over.
