Win a trip to space with KLM

klm space trailerimageThis has to be the greatest airline promotion campaign ever!

I mean to actually give the opportunity to a lucky someone to go into space?

KLM  you got my thumbs up as the geekiest, coolest airline out there.

But i am getting swept off my feet here without having the slightest possibility of winning this thing.

Let’s take things from the start. Here are the facts:

You have to visit KLM’s space page where you will be informed about everything, but in a nutshell: On 22 April, KLM will launch in Nevada a high altitude balloon. The public will have to predict (make educated guesses) the highest altitude that this device (carrying cameras and GPS to monitor its course) will reach, before returning back to earth. The most accurate prediction will win a flight for two to Curacao, and be preview to a luxury hotel stay, while the winner will be treated to an amazing spaceflight for one, on board the SXC Lynx spaceship.

klm space flights by 2014Let me tell you, if this flight is anything like this diagram over here, it will rock! Hope that the winner does not get dizzy. The Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) is planning to launch the first commercial space trip on January 1st, 2014. I wonder how much will those tickets cost….. must start saving up my dimes from now…or sell some vital organ. What is the current market price for a used lung?
