Check this guy's work out:

A weather balloon, camera, parachute, duct tape, and a GPS tracking device - and he got these amazing pictures!

Oh, and by the way, genius idea, the lottery! Now we have to get some nasa fellow to listen, endorse and publish

I have an idea! If your ticket is selected but you are unfit for sace, you could be offered, either to transfer the win to a person of the winner's choice, or a sizable monetary compensation. And problem solved! :)

George the lottery idea is not bas at all. The only problem would be people who buy a ticket but couldn't go due to physical reasons. But work that problem out and I think you have a great way to generate interest and raise money! Also like the idea of a celebrity cruise to the ISS.
