Entrants are asked to create and publish either a video or essay. The submission can take any form, as long as it’s imaginative, relates to space and is published in a public space online! Click here for full entry details.

On 9 December 2010 British-born NASA astronaut Dr Piers Sellers will visit No.4 Hamilton Place, London to deliver this year’s Wilbur and Orville Wright Named Lecture. The 3 lucky competition winners will be invited to attend the lecture and meet with Dr Sellers for 30 minutes prior to the lecture. We hope that this will be an inspiring experience for the winners as well as everybody involved.
