Your Chance to Blast Off
Visit CBS Detroit's
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.
