On the 10th Anniversary of the winning of the $10M Ansari XPRIZE, we have organized a luxury adventure that offers unparalleled insights into commercial space.
This 4-day trip starts in Los Angeles, moves to Mojave Desert and ends in Los Angeles. During this trip you will have a number of private-astronaut tour-guides including Anousheh Ansari and Richard Garriott. They, along with the CEOs and leadership of 10 of the top space-companies, will provide you with an inside view of the space exploration technologies that exist today and those that will take us into tomorrow.
The trip is limited to a select small group of 40 participants interested in helping XPRIZE envision the future of space exploration. This trip is being personally curated by XPRIZE Chairman Peter H. Diamandis, so have confidence it will be an amazing event. Your mission on this trip is to experience cutting edge technology and to aid XPRIZE in conceiving powerful competitions for the future.
Priority for this trip will be given to XPRIZE benefactors and last year’s participants. We expect many of them to participate once again and fill at least half of this year’s seats. So book early to join us

The XPRIZE Foundation is an educational (501c3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity, thereby inspiring the formation of new industries and the revitalization of markets that are currently stuck due to existing failures or a commonly held belief that a solution is not possible. The foundation addresses the world's Grand Challenges by creating and managing large-scale, high-profile, incentivized prize competitions that stimulate investment in research and development worth far more than the prize itself. It motivates and inspires brilliant innovators from all disciplines to leverage their intellectual and financial capital.
The mission of the XPRIZE Foundation is to create radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity by using incentive prizes to change the paradigm of how we think about innovation and solve the world's greatest challenges in five Prize Groups:
Energy & Environment (presented by Cisco Systems),
Life Sciences and Exploration (presented by Shell).
It is a US-based organization led by Chairman & CEO, Dr. Peter H. Diamandis and Vice Chairman & President, Robert K. Weiss, as well as governed by a group of visionary leaders including the Board of Trustees, Vision Circle members, Spirit of Innovation members, corporate partners and sponsors. Today, the XPRIZE Foundation is widely recognized as the leader in fostering innovation through incentivized competition.
