Press release; Private citizens now have the opportunity to catch a free ride into suborbital space. Through a recently announced alliance with SpaceShot, Inc., Rocketplane® spaceflights will be awarded as prizes in upcoming SpaceShot online skill game tournaments.
“Space travel should not just be for the wealthy and government astronauts,” said Sam Dinkin, CEO of SpaceShot, Inc. “For less than $5 and some skill, anyone could be the first on their block to win a trip to space!”

SpaceShot’s website will launch a series of online skill game tournaments this autumn. According to Dinkin, SpaceShot chose Rocketplane because the company’s spaceflights are set to commence in 2007, earlier than any other in the industry.

“SpaceShot gives everyone the opportunity to go to space, not just the wealthy,” said Rocketplane President George French. “SpaceShot’s skill games will be a huge sales channel for us. Even if they award all of our booked flights as prizes, we can build additional rocketplanes to meet demand.”

Those interested in finding out more information about the skill game tournaments can sign up at www.space-shot.com for e-mail updates. Visit www.rocketplane.com for more information about Rocketplane’s XP vehicle.
