Now that Virgin Galactic has flew its founder to the edge of space, is ready to provide everyday people with an opportunity for a similar journey. Virgin and Omaze announced prize games this allows you to win two seats in “one of the first” commercial flights into space. Although you can enter for free, donating to Space for Humanity (a charity that makes space flight more accessible) will give you more entries.
The prize draw ends on September 1, and the companies will reveal the winner on September 29. Just be prepared to take a break from work if you win. You will need to undergo the same training as any other traveler in Virgin Galactica. Still, you have a tour of America Space Airport because of its problems.
Yes, this is not a very subtle way to take advantage of Virgin’s space flight and launch a hype for the company’s efforts in space tourism. Anyway, it’s a significant moment for a private flight into space. The notion of victory maps into space it was unthinkable in the days when NASA and other government agencies were the only organizations to travel into space – now it makes perfect sense.
