How’d you like to blast off into outer space?

To celebrate the Seattle Space Needle’s 50th anniversary, the company that owns the Needle has come up with a contest, and they’re sending the winner on a suborbital launch.

You’ll be weightless for 6 minutes.

The winner will be announced April 2012 …. the 50th birthday of the Space Needle’s opening

during the World’s Fair.

The  ticket  is valued at about $110,000 for the ride on a Space Adventures rocket.

They are expecting millions of entries.

The winner does have to pass a fitness test.

Good luck and happy landing.
