After the successful Unity 22 mission on Sunday, July 11, Richard Brandson immediately announced a partnership with Omaze for a chance to win two seats on a Virgin Galactic commercial flight. Entries for the competition will close on September 1 and winners are expected to be announced around September 29. 

Entering the Competition
Entry is online at omaze.com/space. There is no fee but a minimum donation fo $10 is suggested. The proceeds will go to Space for Humanity, a non-profit organisation that aims to expand access to space. 

The Prize
The winner and one guest will have a chance to meet Branson and receive a private tour of Spaceport America, the company’s launch site in New Mexico. The highlight is, of course, the view of earth from space

The initial price for the 90-minute ride was $200,000 per seat, but Virgin Galactic then raised the price to $250,000. Approximately 600 reservations have been made.
