Abstract: Given the vertex set $ A$ of a nondegenerate simplex in $ {R^d}$, it is shown that for some positive $ \varepsilon = \varepsilon (A)$ and every partition of $ {R^n}$ into fewer than $ {(1 + \varepsilon )^n}$ parts, one of the parts must contain a set congruent to $ A$. This solves a fifteen-year-old problem of Erdös et al. [E].
