Launch Pass NFT: Just when you thought NFTs were dead, along comes an NFT collection that gives you a fairly realistic chance of going into space. Which is nice work if you can get it.

An outfit called Uplift Aerospace has just announced that collectors of their NFTs will get the chance to travel to space aboard New Shepard. This is Blue Origin’s suborbital rocket.

On the 10th May, Uplift Aerospace will release the Launch Pass NFT collection. In it are 10,921 NFT artworks. The number represents the Moon’s circumference (in km).

Launch Pass NFT benefits

Once you own the NFT, you can apply for a job to fly to space. Applicants will be processed and selected by the Uplift Aerospace team. Only people holding the Launch Pass NFT can apply. The applicant will be selected at 11:59 pm EDT on May 22 of this year.


According to the Aerospace team, “Once a member from the NFT community has been selected from the applications for the spaceflight, all owners of the 10,921 Launch Pass NFTs will have the option to convert their Launch Pass to a Space+ NFT avatar character called Starborn.


The Starborn profile pictures (PFPs), built for Space+’s upcoming metaverse, visually represent the future of humanity in space.

Space+ say the objective of to use web3 technologies to create connections between Earth and Space. The Starborn collection will provide access to real-life experiences. This includes suborbital and Zero-G flights. Plus, rocket launch events, professional networks, and “payload space” for showcasing items on the International Space Station.
