Space Race 2012 – Win a Trip to Space

Space Needle Space Adventures 2012

Seattle’s Space Needle celebrates its 50th anniversary by launching one lucky competition winner into space. The Space Needle has teamed up with Space Adventures in what it’s calling Space Race 2012. Space Race prize is a suborbital flight on G-Force One valued at $110,000, which will include about six minutes of weightlessness.

You will have to be picked with 999 other entries by November 30, 2011. Once you are picked, you will have to create a video pitch. A public vote will cut this down to a short-list. Contestants that have got this far will have to undergo a fitness test, and a panel of judges will choose a winner – who will be named next April on the 50th anniversary of the Space Needle’s opening. One of the one thousand people will get a free ticket for a sub-orbital flight.

Space Adventures is extremely excited to partner with the Space Needle on this campaign, said Space Adventures chairman Eric Anderson in a statement. 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 than to offer a flight opportunity to the masses.
