Martha Stewart and a Zero-G prize

The stairway to space history I mentioned in the previous entry has a note about a space prize from Martha Stewart, Zero-G Corporation, and Space Adventures. Although the contest deadline has expired, I will mention that it involves an essay. The prize includes flight on the Zero-G plane. Hobbyspace notes that "Martha Stewart took a ride on a Zero-G parabolic flyer and later lauded the experience on her TV show and sponsored a contest to win a ride. To her right in the photo is her friend Charles Simonyi who is on track to visit the ISS in March 2007."
