The Ten Hundred and One Word ChallengeExternal link invited the 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers to represent their science in images, cartoons, photos, words and original paintings, but any descriptions or words could only use the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language, with the addition of one word important to each of the EFRCs and the mission of DOE: energy.

The Challenge was inspired by Up Goer FiveExternal link, a comic by xkcd.com where the cartoonist describes the complicated blueprint of the Saturn V rocket using only the 1000 most commonly used words in the English language.
