Update – Competition now close.
The legend that is Buzz Aldrin launched a once-in-a-lifetime chance for someone to win a trip to outer space. Aldrin, the astronaut and pilot of the historic Apollo 11 spacecraft which landed on the moon in 1969, said: “Space travel for everyone is the next frontier in the human experience.”
If you want to enter you can create an astronaut profile on LynxApollo.com explaining why you should be picked. Good luck! The four strongest candidates will then be flown to Orlando, Florida, to experience what it is really like to be an astronaut in the final series of challenges. Only one lucky winner will secure their place to go to space in 2014.
Mark Aschmann, Lynx brand manager, said.
“For the first time, we’re simultaneously launching one global competition in over 75 countries offering millions of people the opportunity to win the most epic prize on earth. A trip to space – yes, actual space.”
To mark the launch Lynx held a massive party in London with astronauts and a full scale replica of the Lynx SXC (Space Expedition Corporation) space shuttle which the winner will travel to space in.
