This is a project in collaboration with Virgin Galactic and Omaze. Omaze is a company that raises funds for charities with prizes such as merchandise, some property, and some experience with celebrities.
Therefore, you can apply for this ticket for free, but if you donate to the charity “Space for Humanity” to make space travel more accessible, you can increase the number of applications ($5 for 50, $100 for 2,000 units) is possible.
The deadline for applications is September 1st (local time), and the winners will be announced on September 29th. If you win, you can get a free space ticket, which normally costs about $250,000, but you need to get the training you need to board SpaceShipTwo, so the company and you need to take a break from your college or work for a certain period of time.
Winners will also receive a tour of Spaceport America, which will be the landing site for space as a supplementary prize.
This campaign should be a great promotional material for Virgin Galactic. Furthermore, for us ordinary people, the time has suddenly come when we can go to space with money or good luck.
