A competition in the US is offering a prize that is quite literally out of this world – a chance to climb into a rocket and be blasted high above our planet. It could be you. The offer is being made by the Space Needle, a famous Seattle landmark, to celebrate its upcoming 50th anniversary and to highlight the Needle’s rich heritage and plans for the future.


The prize will involve a trip to a point 62 miles (100 km) above Earth – an altitude officially known as “astronaut altitude.” The competition organizers explain: “As the vehicle reaches the maximum altitude, the rocket engines will shut down and participants will experience up to five minutes of continuous weightlessness, all the while gazing at the vast blackness of space and the blue horizon of the Earth below.”

To have a chance of bagging the top prize, entrants must first submit their name via an online form by the end of November. A thousand names will then be drawn and a competition stage will begin involving the making of a short video followed by a public vote to choose finalists. A series of challenges will then be set, with the winner being awarded the ticket for the ride in the rocket.

In a press release issued by Space Adventures on Monday, the company said, “It is our mission to open the space frontier to the private sector and there is no better way to energize the general public, especially our youth, about space then to offer a flight opportunity to the masses.”

I saw this the other day on the news!

Im soooo in! You do know that is my seat right


There is another competition at the KCS here too. It's a scavenger hunt at the Visitors Center. You have to get all questions correct to be entered in the contest though. I'm getting a year round pass next week while I'm there and going every single day before work and getting the questions, hopefully I can get them all right at least one time because that is all you need!!


So I have two chances! I keep telling them if they need volunteers for Mars Im so in!

Yes, I should have put that: It is for USA residence only. Sorry.

I just made the wife and kids sign up....

The wife wants the telescope-no ride!!!!!

She says that she won't let me go either...


I fight that battle when the time comes/if I win...

I'll have to say I thought this idea would attract more ATS members. hmmm.

Like you said, more chances for you (us)

Yes, that does kinda suck. But maybe after this one they will do one over there. I am sure it is all about logistics and things like that.

Not a USA vs the World type of thing. I think it would be great to do it several places around the world-to keep Space Exploration alive and to gain some space fans with a lot of educational stuff.

Anyway, rest assured that if I am picked... ATS will be given all the details and info I can provide.

Okay, last try-for the "In case you missed it" pile...

I just can't believe more people didn't comment on this and/or see this thread.

Come on----A chance to go into space--for FREE.

Better than no chance at all.

Come on ATS-everyone of us (well most) should be shooting for that chance.

If I get picked I will be requesting an ATS hat & shirt to wear!!!
