In case you haven't heard, folks: AXE will be sending the first Filipino into space by 2014!
But that's old news already, although we admit, it's a helluva milestone! So once again, mark your calendars folks, the first Pinoy or Pinay (women are in the running, too!) will be seeing space next year! And that's in the sweet ride below!
AXE recently announced that the number of aspirants for their "space program" has reached two million worldwide, with the Philippines contributing over 20,000—good enough to be in the top five in terms of applications globally.
And because we seem to be really atat to put one of our kababayans up in space, AXE shared another piece of good news: They've opened up another slot for Pinas! Originally, only the top two Filipino vote-getters would be sent to the AXE Apollo Global Space Camp in Florida for the training, but a special "golden ticket" is now up for grabs via the Hyperdrive Promo. This will award a third Pinoy the chance to go to space camp.
