The final question in this year’s competition is:
Whose actions/efforts did more to advance and disseminate the prestige of science?
The spirit of the question asks about Einstein’s and du Châtelet’s efforts, not the effects of their work. You are, of course, free to interpret it however you like.
The delay in posting the final round was caused by a) a wedding and b) some disagreement about a “fair” question. This one seemed to the committee to be the fairest of the questions left in the hat. ↩
