Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

Congrats to all entrants - its good to see the contributions - also thanks to the sponsor, Scopes and Space Ltd, for making the event possible and encouraging entrants to submit their entries. Particularly, I'd like to express a hearty "well done!" to the winner- Dave Connolly.

It's very aesthetic and a thought provoking shot - man (or if your prefer, Michael) peering into the Milky Way...
