A company called Space Miles has announced that they will be holding the first set of continuous space flight lotteries in the world. The idea is for potential passenger to buy a lottery ticket and the winners get a ride into suborbital space.
According to the press release, “Space Shuffle ticket prices have yet to be fully established but are unlikely to be more than $15.00 each.
“The prizes will include all travel and accommodation expenses and even provide an element of “spending money” to enable individual flight winners, (plus one
accompanying guest or partner), to fully celebrate their elevation to ‘Astronaut Status’.
“For Space Enthusiasts who don’t quite have their “Space Legs” The Space Shuffle intends to offer lower level prizes of ‘Edge of Space” and “Zero-G Parabolic’ flights.
“The number of prizes is unlimited and every time a winner is rewarded, the automated system will simply re-calibrate itself to zero and the competitions will begin again immediately.”
More information will be posted in the coming weeks here.
