Fly into Space with the innovative contest from the makers of 7-UP. You win a seat on one of the first public sub-orbital flights when made available. If they do not get in the air by 2009, they get 300,000.





The grand prize is a suborbital trip to the fringe of space, on a yet-to-be-flown craft that's based on SpaceShipOne technology. Why SpaceShipOne? Because the giveaway deal is being put together through the auspices of the X Prize Foundation.


The X Prize foundation is pretty cool, and so is this contest. This is a marketing wet dream.Virgin galactic is in hte forefront for public orbit, and thier is a guarantee if you can't get up by 2009..




It would be up to SpaceShipOne's team at Mojave Aerospace Ventures to make sure the seat is open on a spaceship that has licensed the SS1 technology. For now, the obvious candidate is Virgin Galactic, the only known licensee, but the agreement could also be fulfilled by "someone else who licensed the technology," Diamandis said.

Hmm. What happens if there are multiple licensees, which would be allowed under Virgin Galactic's non-exclusive agreement with Mojave Aerospace Ventures? "I have no idea," Diamandis said.

If no one can make good on the ticket by the end of 2009, the winner would just get $300,000 in cash.

I entered the sweepstakes that Volvo had right after the Superbowl.

Didn't win though.


I'll keep an eye out for the 7-up one though. Thanks for the heads-up.

Give me the 300k. Like I've said before, something will go wrong with those flights. People in power can't afford to have ever increasing amounts of private citizens flying in to sub-orbit seeing strange things and then coming back to Earth running their mouths to all their friends about what they saw. Bank on it!

Peace

you know, i never thought of that from that point, but i can't see them killing off people. they would probably send one up, feign equipment going wrong, and ground the plane from then on. besides, gives if Bush or Blair went on it, they'd have the opportunity to get a little closer to home

Really interesting contest. I'm sure this will generate a lot of interest, and sales.

But this is 7UP, not Sprite.

I have entered, and it's more like 1 in a 200million chance, since as far as I know its US only, and not everyone will enter....
