You Could Be An Astronaut. Really!
Always wanted to go to the edge of space and back in a private spaceship? Astronaut Buzz Aldrin (the second man to set foot on the moon) and AXE body spray are giving you a chance as they will send 22 winners to the edge of space and back aboard a private spaceship (and you'll smell great too!). The winning space travelers will launch aboard a suborbital Lynx space plane built by the U.S. company XCOR Aerospace and operated by the tourism firm Space Expedition Curacao.
The contest is open to men and women in more than 60 countries who sign up on the AXE Apollo Space Academy website and write about why they should be chosen to fly in space, while others will vote on the entries. The deadline to enter is February 3.
If you're not chosen as one of the 22 and have some extra cash burning a hole in your pocket, Space Expedition Curacao will oversee commercial Lynx flights from the Caribbean island of Curacao. Tickets for a flight are set at $95,000.
