The Massey Lectures are an annual event in Canada, where one person gives five different public speeches over the course of a month. This year, the speaker is theoretical physicist Neil Turok. He's also the director of the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and the Institute is sponsoring a contest where you can win tickets to the lectures (there are two left) or copies of Turok's latest book. The grand prize, though, is the really exciting bit. One lucky winner will get a 7-day trip for two to both the Perimeter Institute and CERN (home of the Large Hadron Collider). Feeling lucky? Enter your name in the drawing by October 24.

    Way to kill my odds at winning Maggie!

    It would be awesome if you clarify that the contest is available only in Canada or the continental United States. I know it’s “the most logical thing about a contest from Canada”, but your international readers will appreciate it ;)

    Filling out the form produces a message suggesting that the contest runs until November 15, 2012.

    Hey! I can’t enter, I’m Australian, and I already invited a pal from Monash Uni to come with. So not fair.

    A chance to meet Turok (fine print: physicist, not dinosaur hunter).
