Fellow space junkies, check this out: The country has finally found two of its three official candidates for the Axe Apollo Space Mission in 2014, courtesy of the Axe Apollo National Challenge last Saturday, August 31, at the Bonifacio Global City!

Around 400 participants battled it out in a series of intense challenges throughout the event, and two men finally came out on top just before sunset. These winners will be joined by a third candidate, who will be picked via an electronic raffle promo real soon. They're set to undergo astronaut training in the U.S. this December together with over a hundred candidates from all over the world, but only one of them will get to call himself the first Pinoy spaceman.

"It's been over seven months since we started this nationwide search for the first Pinoy astronaut," says Axe Philippines Brand Manager Gem Laforteza. "Now that we are down to the last three, I think it's really starting to sink in that pretty soon we will be sending one of these people to space."

Without further ado, hit the gallery below and meet the winners of the Axe Apollo National Challenge!
