I have got to just drop everything and become a resident of the UK. The opportunities are overwhelming. I might even win a trip into space! It’s true, little ol’ me, in space.
According to Gadling all I have to do is write a simple essay – bingo, off to space. What more could a girl ask? Up there, with a view of the roiling atmosphere, would be about as good as it gets.
Audi & The New Scientist are giving away this trip as a prize for answering a simple question: “What is the best patented invention, and why?” That’s a cinch. I’ve got it made, and I know the perfect answer. The contest is limited to a brief response of 250 words or less – no problem. It’s obvious, I’m going to space.
The program consists of :
* Fly into space, 62 miles (100 kilometers) above Earth
* View the Earth from space
* Experience weightlessness
* Participate in the birth of the space travel industry and inspire future generations of explorers
The trip is planned for 2009, and of course there will be other contestants – I feel sorry for them.
Don’t even bother to ask — I’m not telling. Now all I have to do is get to the airport before you do.
