Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and Astronomy Magazine are partnering to host the Great Balls of Fire Contest, giving away a 9.6-pound authentic meteorite collectable and a space adventure trip for four to the Visitor Complex.
The trip includes round-trip airfare to Florida (provided by Astronomy Magazine), a three-day/two-night stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in Cocoa Beach (provided by Marriott), Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex admission tickets, Lunch With An Astronaut tickets, and a Kennedy Space Center Up-Close Tour.
The meteorite prize is from the prehistoric fall in 1576 at Gran Chaco Gualambra, Argentina, and it will be displayed at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex through the end of the contest on Nov. 30.
The Great Balls of Fire Contest celebrates the new Great Balls of Fire interactive exhibit at the Visitor Complex, which allows guests to discover the risks that asteroids, comets and meteorites present planet Earth.
Within the exhibit is Asteroid Encounter, where guests can climb aboard a “spaceship” and blast off to the asteroid belt and Jupiter while compiling data about asteroids and comets. Guests also can explore what would happen if one of these celestial bodies were to hit their hometown, determine Science Fact or Science Fiction of Hollywood movie clips and much more.
Guests can enter the contest at Astronomy.com/KennedySweeps until midnight on Nov. 30. The Great Balls of Fire Contest is open to residents of the United States and Canada (except Quebec) only.
