Uplift Aerospace has announced a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an NFT collector to travel to space aboard New Shepard, Blue Origin’s suborbital rocket.
On May 10th, 2022, Uplift Aerospace will release the “Launch Pass” NFT collection with 10,921 NFT artworks—a nod to the Moon’s circumference (in km).
Every NFT holder is then eligible to apply for a job to fly to space on New Shepard. Applicants will be evaluated, and a finalist will be selected by the Uplift Aerospace team.
By May 9th, 2022, full data on entrance requirements and the selection procedure will be published on www.spaceplus.xyz.
An applicant from the Space+ community will be selected at 11:59 pm EDT on May 22nd, 2022. To guarantee that the applicant chosen is a current Launch Pass owner, the Space+ team will take a picture of the owners’ wallets at the time of the deadline on May 22nd.
All owners of the 10,921 Launch Pass NFTs will have the opportunity to convert their Launch Pass into a Space+ NFT avatar character named Starborn once a member of the NFT community has been chosen from the applicants for the spaceflight.
The Starborn profile pictures (PFPs), built for Space+’s upcoming metaverse, visually represent the future of humanity in space. The timing of this conversion option is programmed into the NFT “smart contract.” No PFP can be revealed before the selected applicant is announced.
The Launch Pass and Starborn NFTs will double as membership tokens for the holders to join the Starborn Space Program and access future additional space-related community benefits, contests, and products.
