We Have Liftoff
3… 2… 1… We Have Liftoff! Register for this virtual race and then run, walk, bike, or swim whenever and wherever you want to support a charity that uses spaceflight to promote STEM learning for high-school students. All participants will receive what may be the most unique race medal ever created, featuring a flipbook mounted between an astronaut and a “SpaceVS” rocket. Remove the crank from the middle rocket booster and attach it to the bottom of the medal; Then crank it to bring the medal to life, as you flip through a 30 photograph sequence from the very first SpaceX Falcon Heavy test flight, courtesy of photographer Michael Seeley.
