"The winner of NASA's $200k spacesuit glove contest has been found. He's an unemployed aerospace engineer, named Peter Homer, and claims to have bought most of the materials in local shops and on eBay."

What is the significance of this to immigration? Well, much of the justification of expansion of H-1b visas is that the US needs more technical talent. What we've seen is that whenever we have an honest competition, US citizens seem to come out of the woodwork. Maybe what US corporations need more than just more corporate welfare is more honest competition.
