Benson Space Company to offer Contest for Space Rides

Jim Benson comment on Space Pragmatism (awesome!) and said:

Because of these tax problems, Benson Space Company will offer a contest for Dream Chaser spaceship rides. It will be a contest and not a drawing. People can submit their email address now at in order to be notified when the contest begins.

When you fill it out you will get the following response:

Thank you for sharing the dream of spaceflight.

When I was a little boy, I used to dream of blasting off and flying around in a spaceship to have exciting adventures and to explore the Solar System. Now, with the formation of Benson Space Company and the building of our Dream Chaser™ spaceship, this dream is becoming a reality, and I want to share it with you.

Until now, space travel has been for the privileged few: government scientists and astronauts, and the ultra-wealthy spending $20 million or more. The Dream Chaser™ will change all that. Our spaceship is causing a fundamental shift in the way humanity approaches space flight.
I have worked my whole life to bring the dream of commercial space travel into reality, and I am proud to say the time is here. The time is now, and I am inviting you to join me on this greatest of all adventures.

Over the next several weeks we will finalize the details of our Free Trip To Space contest.I am looking forward to sharing the dream of space travel with you, and I will send you the details of our first contest when it is officially launched in the upcoming weeks on our web site.

This will be a very innovative contest, and we hope to award free astronaut-making trips to several people, and we plan to offer a very low cost “Second Chance” if you don’t win one of the free trips.

I greatly appreciate your taking the time to join our mailing list, and am looking forward to announcing our exciting contest as soon as possible.
I appreciate your taking the time to join our mailing list.

Onward & Upward,

Thanks for letting me know about this!

This should prove to be interesting! I'm not sure if I'll win a free trip to the stars, but regardless of who wins this will indeed be a small step for the private space sector.
