Buzz Aldrin announced something awesome today: a lottery to send some lucky winner into space.
Details of the competition are still sketchy, Aldrin said at a space investment conference on Wall Street Tuesday, with the legal status of selling lottery tickets still to be resolved.
He said the idea was to offer the top prize of a flight into Earth’s orbit, but it was not yet decided on what spacecraft.
So it’s not exactly “WIN A TRIP TO THE MOON!“, but it’s a nice first step in that direction.
