Suborbital Space Lottery to be Offered

Don’t have $200,000 to pluck down for five minutes of suborbital weightless bliss? No worries. You might be able to get there for mere $25. If you’re very, very, very lucky.

An Isle of Man-based Space Miles (IOM) Ltd. has announced what appears to be the first space lottery. The Space Shuffle will allow contestants to win suborbital tourist flights, zero gravity trips, and other prizes.

“The Space Shuffle Lottery will be offering an ongoing continuous series of Space Flight Excursion Tickets as prizes at the affordable entry price of $25.00,” according to the company’s press release. “We hope a whole series of Lucky Winners will earn their Astronaut Wings and personally contribute to mankind’s greatest adventure.”

The lottery will not begin operation for several months. It is not affiliated with Vrigin Galactic or any other company offering space tourism flights.
