Big Bang Theory fan is out of this world. Literally.

July 18th, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

Show sends fan of with a bang.. a big bang!

Something happened at Comic Con courtesy of the Big Bang Theory, something that has never been done before.
The show ran a competition to send a fan into space on the Lynx Experience, a two man ship that travels like a plane.
Mercedes is her name and she will join astronaut Richard Searfoss on this mega trip.
The competition was devised because of last season’s Howard Wolowitz went into space.
The flight comes courtesy of a private company called COR Aerospace.
Details of the time and date of the launch have yet to be revealed but what a surprise for the lucky fan and what a chance.

Good luck to her.

He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
