Strasburg, PA (PRWEB) January 19, 2011
Photos To Space is offering people a chance to send their pictures to space in hopes to encourage them to take that first step to space travel – at least until it becomes more affordable to partake in such a journey. Scheduled for an April 2011 launch, a rocket will take off out of Spaceport America, the newest U.S. spaceport, located south of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
“When people look at our product, one of the first questions that comes to mind is, ‘Why not send a real photo?’ And although the answer is complex, it ultimately boils down to price,” says Joe Latrell, CEO of Photos to Space. “Most people would be surprised to know that it currently costs more than $250 to send a physical 4 x 6-in photo to space, so we are providing them with an affordable opportunity to participate in space travel.”
Photobucket will be participating with Photos To Space by encouraging their own users to participate in this unique opportunity via Photobucket.com. Photos To Space’s target audience makes Photobucket a natural choice for a partner.
Photos To Space was created with the goal of getting people involved and interested in space travel – something so rare that only a few people on Earth have ever had the opportunity to experience it. “Commercial space travel is closer than ever”, says Joe Latrell, “Our mission is to extend the interest in commercial space travel to the general public, in the hopes that many people will be able to participate in something that most of us only dream about.” Find out more information about Photos To Space’s space travel opportunity at http://www.photostospace.com
