Highest Bidder in Online Auction Site -has confirmed that he will pay and unknown seller the amount of one million, six hundred dollars and 42 cents for the chance to be the first person to penetrate the Earth's atmosphere without help of a rocket.
The ad placed nearly a month ago on the famous online auction site has drawn an unbelievable amount of bids. This is the highest amount ever bid on this site says the owner of the site.
It is not known how the person will be shot to outer space without benefit of a NASA built rocket, but apparently the high bidder is not concerned with this matter, but just wants to be the first and only such person to do so.
NASA personnel are also interested in how this feat will be accomplished and are contacting the auction site's seller to investigate his plans.
No one to the knowledge of NASA has ever attempted or succeeded in anything of this nature before.
The winning bidder is excited about being the high bidder and is anxiously awaiting the confirmation of his bid.
Another strange fact regarding this is that there has only been one bidder and he kept bidding against himself until he ended up being the winning bidder after hitting the reserve price stipulated by the seller.
