Ever dreamt of visiting space? Well, here’s your chance to win one.
After successfully sending founder Richard Branson to the edge of space, Virgin Galactic is now offering everyone the same opportunity to take a trip beyond Earth on their spaceplane. Partnering with the fundraising platform Omaze, Branson has announced that they are opening a sweepstake that will send one winner and a friend on this spaceflight.
The sweepstake is also a fundraiser for the nonprofit Space for Humanity, and the more one donates, the more entries they’ll get. Every US$50 entitles the donor to 1000 entries, with the limit placed at 6000 (US$300 equivalent), though you may still submit an entry without donating.
Participants must be 18 years or older and based in the US to enter. The winner and their guest must prove that they’re vaccinated against COVID-19 to be eligible to win the sweepstakes.
The prize-draw will close on 1 September and the winner will be announced on 29 September. The spaceflight is estimated to happen in early 2022.
