Astronauts4Hire offers limited time high profile Sponsorship Special
Tampa, Florida – For a limited time, Astronauts4Hire is offering a Sponsorship Special leading up to its inaugural mission testing the world’s first beer brewed specifically for drinking in space. During this promotion, sponsors contributing $1,000 or more will receive a shoulder logo on the flight suit worn by the Astronaut4Hire researcher during the historic flight. Sponsors of $5,000 or more will receive a logo on the chest of the flight suit and mention in all future press releases regarding the flight. With the high level of media attention expected, sponsors will gain extensive exposure to national and international audiences.
During the planned November 19, 2010 flight aboard Zero Gravity Corporation’s specially modified aircraft, the Astronauts4Hire flight researcher will sample the specially produced beer during periods of weightlessness and record biometric and qualitative data related to the beer’s drinkability. The Vostok Space Beer, produced as a joint venture between Saber Astronautics Australia and the 4-Pines Brewing Company, is a recipe designed to meet anticipated demand from the budding space tourism market while still being popular here on Earth.
The flight activity will be captured by multiple high-definition video cameras, and two international Discovery Channel shows are planned to film the flight for inclusion in upcoming features. Astronauts4Hire has already gained massive worldwide attention since it first announced the space beer testing mission in September. NPR, BBC, Time magazine, Discover magazine, Popular Science, and many others have already featured stories on the project.
Interested sponsors should contact Astronauts4Hire by November 5 to be eligible for the special promotion. All funds will support Astronauts4Hire’s mission to increase the competitiveness of commercial astronaut candidates by providing skills training, facilitating forums for candidate communication, engaging with potential employers, and inspiring the next generation.
