January 10, 2013
AXE, a hair-products company, has announced the AXE Apollo Space Academy (A.A.S.A) with astronaut Buzz Aldrin. By joining A.A.S.A at AXEApollo.com, you can compete for one of 22 tickets to travel to space on a flight with Space Expedition Corporation (SXC). Deadline: Feb. 3.
Top-voted candidates will qualify for a challenge in their local country (excluding the U.S.), with the ultimate candidates winning a place in the final stage at the AXE Global Space Camp in Orlando, Florida, where the final 22 space travelers will be selected based on competitive space-simulation challenges.
AXE (LYNX in some parts of the world) has partnered with SXC to secure 22 seats aboard the suborbital spacecraft, aptly named, the Lynx. SXC, led by CEO Michiel Mol, operates XCOR Aerospace’s Lynx suborbital space plane, which takes passengers more than 100 kilometers into space, achieving astronaut status.
