Media Release | Axe South Africa Sends Mandla Maseko To Space



























“Axe Apollo Space Academy® has revealed the final crew from around the world that will launch into space, and Mandla Maseko from South Africa has been selected among the Next Generation of Space Explorers.

Mandla is among an international team of A.A.S.A space travelers.  The A.A.S.A. team includes men and women representing countries around the globe, some of whom will make history as the first from their nations to go to space. Some of these history-making winners include the first Filipino, Thai and New Zealander to go to space.  In total, the A.A.S.A. international team represents Canada, Brazil, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Netherlands, Spain, Slovakia, Russia, Turkey, Egypt, India, Japan, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa and China.

On the heels of this remarkable opportunity, Mandla, as is to be expected, is very excited. “Wow. Now I believe that dreams really can come true. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for anyone. But for me, it’s totally unreal. I will make South Africa proud.”  Axe South Africa Brand Manager, Vincent Viviers stated that: “This is a very exciting time for AXE and for South Africans. We’re breaking barriers in terms of what we can do and the ways in which we can reward consumers. This will go down in the history books and we’re thrilled to be a part of it.”  

Mandla’s remarkable journey will conclude with his flight to space onboard a Space Expedition Corporation (Space SXC) shuttle: XCOR’s LYNX Mark II.”
