The Philippines joins the space race

The Philippines joins the space race as Axe Philippines announces an ambitious project to send the first Filipino astronaut into space.  In partnership with an American space travel agency called Space Expedition Corporation (Space XC), the iconic male fragrance brand AXE – in some countries known as LYNX – embarks on a massive global undertaking to send civilians to space.  And Axe Philippines has confirmed that one of these would-be space travelers is going to be from the Philippines.  They are calling the program the Axe Apollo Space Academy (AASA), which if successful would be one of the most historic marketing campaigns ever launched in the country.

The selection process will consist of several stages and challenges designed to determine who the best person for the job of “First Filipino Astronaut” would be.  The first step is to sign up for the mission at  Ten thousand people will eventually be invited to go through a series of challenges, from which two people will be selected to undergo training at the Axe Apollo Global Space Camp in Orlando, Florida.  After spending some time in space camp, one of the two Filipino representatives will be handed the mission to go where no Filipino has gone before.

“The program we’ve launched is an opportunity for our great nation to join the global community in taking the next big leap.  We’re very excited to meet the first Pinoy astronaut.  It could be anyone,” says Gem Laforteza, Axe Brand Manager in the Philippines.
“We are very proud to be part of this historic project.  Good luck to all the aspiring space travelers in the Philippines,” says a Space XC representative.
