magazine has partnered with the Kennedy Space Center for a sweepstakes in which one lucky winner will win an authentic meteorite and a trip for four to the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida.
The sweepstakes will be held in conjunction with the new Great Balls of Fire interactive exhibit at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. At the exhibit, people will learn about the possible impacts and risks of asteroids and comets. Visitors of the exhibit will be able to blast off to the asteroid belt aboard a “spaceship,” build their own solar system, learn how to identify meteorites, explore what would happen if one were to hit your home town, and much more. Astronomy
magazine, the world’s best-selling astronomy magazine, provides a great platform to promote the Kennedy Space Center Visitors Complex and the exhibit. This sweepstakes is part the partnership.
The prize package includes a Campo del Cielo meteorite from the prehistoric fall at Gran Chaco Gualambra, Argentina, weighing 9.6 pounds. Pieces of the meteorite were first located in 1576. In addition, the winner will receive a space adventure package for four that includes admission to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour, and lunch with an astronaut. Round-trip airfare for four, ground transportation, and three-day/two-night hotel accommodations are also included as part of the prize.
