Virgin Galactic reveals the winner of free trip to space

Published by Trevor Mogg on DigitalTrends

Virgin Galactic has just announced the winner of its sweepstake with the top prize of a free suborbital space ride on a rocket-powered plane.

The lucky winner is Keisha S., a health and life coach and former flight attendant from Antigua in the Caribbean. The prize includes two seats — worth $450,000 each — so Keisha will take along her daughter, a student studying astrophysics.

Aiming to squeeze as much publicity out of the sweepstake as possible, Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson, who himself took a test flight aboard the company’s VSS Unity rocket plane in July, presented Keisha with news of the prize in person.
