Guardian Unlimited | Science | The prize: $10m. To win, just solve these science problems

Good idea, but will inevitably face criticisms of being too commercial. And not as ethical as the Bill and Melinda Gates Fund for health research, which targets health problems not tackled by big pharma (e.g. Malaria in the developing world).

And am I the only one staggered that at the fact that some $1oom was spent on the Ansari X-Prize? If people can afford close to $10m to enter, surely they could have done some research themselves?
