Win A Flight To Space From KLM

KLM is giving away an amazing prize, a trip to space on the SXC Lynx!

KLM will be releasing a high altitude balloon from the Nevada Desert. To enter you need to claim your place in space by guessing where the balloon will pop at it’s highest point aka peak altitude.

There are two things you get to select:

  • The height- I picked 36.0 KM
  • Horizontal drift- I had to skim around a little bit to find an unclaimed spot
When the balloon is released, it’s progress can be followed online. The person who’s place is closest to where the balloon pops, wins the trip to space.

The Prize: An all inclusive ticket to space aboard the SXC Lynx worth $95,000.

  • A flight for the winner and a guest from anywhere around the world to Curacao
  • Hotel stay chosen by KLM
  • The winner only and not the guest will take the SXC flight into space
  • The SXC Lynx will take the winner 64 miles up to space at 4 G’s of thrust
Some Rules:
  • Must be at least 18 years of age to enter
  • One entry per person is allowed
  • Enter by April 22, 2013

Become An Astronaut With Space Expedition Curacao

Many people have heard about going to space with Virgin Galactic but there’s other competition out there for space travel.
I came across Space Expedition Curacao a couple of weeks ago.

For $95,000 you can be a part of the Founder Program. Only 100 people will have the honor to be a part of this program. They will make the first flights into space with SXC. A full payment is required to sign up. Founders will get a complementary training mission and 3 night stay in a luxury hotel in Curacao.

Another program they are running is the Future Astronaut Program. After the initial 100 astronauts have been to space they will get a turn to go. This also includes a 3 night stay in a luxury hotel and costs $95,000 broken up into two payments.

I guess if you have a lot of money to burn and have traveled all over the world, then this is the right adventure for you. I could think of tons of better things to do with $95,000…
