Space Enthusiasts Get Chance to Hang out with Buzz Aldrin and Terry Virts

Calling all space enthusiasts! Have you ever dreamed of meeting legendary moon walker Buzz Aldrin or former Commander of the International Space Station Terry Virts?

Now’s your chance.

The Share Space Foundation is offering a chance for two guests to join Virts and Aldrin on July 16 at Kennedy Space Center to celebrate the 48th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission. A donation of various levels to the Share Space Foundation provides entries to win.

The winner will receive:

  • VIP seating at the ShareSpace Gala’s 48th anniversary celebration of Apollo 11
  • A one-of-a-kind virtual reality experience to travel to Mars with Aldrin
  • The chance to talk to Aldrin about exploration to Mars and the future of space travel

Virts, an Embry-Riddle alumnus who earned his Master of Aeronautical Science from the Worldwide campus in 1997, spent 200 days aboard the International Space Station in 2015.

Proceeds from the contest will benefit The ShareSpace Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring children’s passions for S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) subjects.

You know WHERE you’re going. We help you GET THERE.
