Redeem 10 million USAir miles to go on a Space Flight!

I didn't think this was much of a "hot deal". I just think it's too weird to be legit, even though it's on the US Airways site!

Apparently you can redeem 10 million miles to go on a Suborbital Space Flight.

I only have 2800 USAir miles so I have a waaaays to go! LOL

I don't think I want to go into space on a ship where the ground crew is working for free.

I know people who've had a couple million miles, but never 10.

If I had the points I'd do it, but this sounds like BS to me

They're just hooking you up with Space Adventures: http://www.spaceadventures.com/

It's real and legit, sort of thing. Gotta do something with all that Soviet space hardware.

I thought the same thing too, but (IMO) the USAirways official site is credible.

As Brian Fellows would say "That's KA-RAZY".

Actually, the 275,000 mile "edge of space" award is probably a good possibility for a lot of folks...

One Edge of Space award
Aboard a MiG-25 "Foxbat" jet fighter:
Rocket to altitudes as high as 85,000 feet
Travel faster than twice the speed of sound
See the curvature of the Earth below
See the blackness of space above
...and much more

Ummm, considering how much the ticket costs, I'm sure it's legit.
