"worlds enough and time / to spare an hour to find a rhyme"

Unbeknowst to me, the British Association for the Advancement of Science decided to celebrate national science week and the year of Einstein in verse, based around the work of the famous physicist. The competition was open to the public, and the winners were announced March 17, 2005, with the adult prize going to a versified imaginary conversation with Einstein. The title quote above is from Terry Pratchett who was among the iluminati who offered up paeans. Aside from the adult category, there was a winner for each of the following age brackets: 4-7, 8-11, 12- 15, and 16-18.
