Donate to Mars Initiative and win a ticket to space

Ticket To Rise” is the name of the fund raising campaign created by Mars Initiative that, with a donation starting from 10 dollars, allows you to participate to the draw for winning a ticket to fly on the XCOR Lynx Mark II spacecraft (see picture), which will reach an altitude of 100 km, internationally recognised as the edge of space.
It’s a one in a lifetime opportunity!

The winner will be one of the first 100 persons to experience this spaceflight on board XCOR spacecraft (more info on the vehicle and the flight here: www.spacexc.com).
The winner will fly alone beside the pilot. The value of the ticket is 100,000 dollars, but the one winning this draw will fly for free and may claim the title astronaut upon their return.

Beside the Founders Ticket, the package includes:
- Exclusive status as SXC’s “Founding Astronaut”;
- 4g simulator training mission;
- Roll Out // Assignment party;
- Video of the entire experience;
- Bragging rights for life.
During the flight you will experience zero gravity for approx. 5-6 minutes.

The donations start from 10 dollars. Your name will be added to the draw 5 times for each donated dollar.

If you donate to Mars Initiative you participate to the raising of funds destined to the first Mars manned mission project that is actually in the process to succeed.
In a nutshell, you’ll contribute in sending the first humans to Mars.

To support the work of Mars Initiative you can also subscribe its donation program or just purchase the official merchandising.

So, what are you waiting for?
Donate and, if you are lucky, you’ll fly to space!
