Just 10 seconds is all it would take for you to help me get one step closer to space. There’s a competition running at the moment and eventually 22 people from around the world will get sent on a sub-orbital space flight. One of them will be from the UK – I need your help to make sure that’s me.
Maybe you follow my blog and you know how much this means to me, maybe I cleared your pavement of snow this morning, maybe you just stumbled across this post and you’re feeling generous – whatever the reason you got here, it would mean the world to me if you voted, and passed it on. There’s stiff competition, but surely someone known as @SpaceKate has to be in with a chance?
There’s a lot of fluff and nonsense about “Leave a man, return a hero” – if it takes a sex change I’ll do it – just get me to space! I’ll be writing in more detail about why I think the competition tagline/images are somewhat disappointing in a age when we really need to encourage more people, and that means more WOMEN, into science, technology, engineering and maths study.
For now though, just make my day – VOTE!
