Buzz Aldrin Launches Competition To Send Regular People To Space

Quote:
If you've ever harboured ambitions to see the Earth from space, this is your chance.
Buzz Aldrin, the second man ever to set foot on the moon, and deodorant brand Lynx have launched a competition, with the first prize a once-in-a-lifetime chance to blast into orbit.
The 22 winners, which will include one Brit, will experience Earth from outer space on the Lynx SXC (Space Expedition Corporation) space shuttle - scheduled to lift off next year.

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.'
The 82-year-old, who recently divorced his third wife Lois Driggs Cannon, citing irreconcilable differences, added:

'I’m thrilled that Lynx is giving the young people of today such an extraordinary opportunity to experience some of what I’ve encountered in space.'
Top-voted candidates will qualify for the Lynx Space Academy challenge weekend, held this summer, where they will face physical and mental NASA-style tests.
