The winner who correctly guesses the answer to a single question will be able to board a suborbital flight to the edge of the realm once described as man’s final frontier. 

KLM’s competition offers a place on a Space Expedition Corporation (SXC) Lynx spaceship, with room for one passenger and one astronaut, launching from Curacao in the Dutch Caribbean.

It claims it will be the first commercial flight to space, departing on January 1, 2014 and lasting approximately an hour, with tickets normally costing $95,000 (£62,018).

Entrants to the competition are being asked to guess the height at which a high altitude balloon, to be released above the Nevada desert by KLM on April 22, will pop and fall back to Earth.
