With Jef Bezos’ trip to space, we have news for you. You too can travel to space now, for free!

But for that, you will have to be lucky enough to win a really special lucky draw. No promises, though. Below are a few agencies that may take you to space for free.

Virgin Galactic Lucky Draw

Virgin Galactic, Richard Branson’s company has a lucky draw option that will offer two free tickets on one of the first commercial space flights, which is supposed to happen in 2022.

The registration is open till September 1, and the winner will be announced around September 29. Both the tickets will be given to a single winner and whoever wins them can bring their friend, partner or guest along. Moreover, if you are an Indian, you are eligible to register.

Issacman’s raffle for SpaceX mission

A customer of the SpaceX company is 37-year-old billionaire Jared Issacman, who has announced that he will take a three- or a four-day trip beyond the earth’s gravity. He will charter SpaceX’s four-seater Crew Dragon and a rocket that would launch the spacecraft.

Issacman has given two seats on the spacecraft to a free children’s hospital — St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The billionaire raffled off the last seat, for which one need not pay. Keep an eye on similar opportunities.

NASA and Axiom’s Private Astronaut

Axiom Space’s private astronaut program’s first mission Ax-1 is already booked and will take off in January 2022. Although, for its next mission Ax-2, two mission specialists are yet to be announced and you can apply on their website if you want to get a ticket. The price should not be less than Ax-1.

After Ax-2, more private missions are coming as the company has already signed a deal with SpaceX for Ax-3 and Ax-4.

Dear Moon Project

Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa is working with SpaceX for one such mission – dearMoon. Maezawa, an art collector, expects the crew members to produce art expressing their experience of being in space. Applications to join the crew are closed now. Keep checking their website.
