And that my friends, is conservative inclusiveness.

In suffering through reading the article: it's an international contest for 22 males to 'win' a chance to attend a 'space camp' in Florida after which any graduating campers will ride a 'passenger rocket' into sub-orbit JUST high enough to be considered an "astronaut".

The prerequisites require neither intelligence, nor technical expertise to actually contribute anything to the trip - merely the greatest number of votes.

And the contest has the publicity-stench of buzz aldrin sprayed all over it.

Win. Launch. Crash. And hopefully give us a more-entertaining article to read at that time.
