United Kingdom-based Unilever Group and Space Expedition Corporation (SXC)
announced a 22 flight purchase on XCOR Aerospace's Lynx® Mark II suborbital
spacecraft for Unilever's space-themed AXEApollo™ campaign for the AXE® brand
of men's cologne, body spray, shower gels and other personal care products.

Unilever will award the first flight to a lucky winner selected from a drawing
just after the Super Bowl on February 3rd, and the 21 other winners will come
from a year long, 60 country promotional campaign. That larger campaign
includes a 100+ person December 2013 space camp for early stage winners in
Orlando called the AXE Apollo™ Space Academy (A.A.S.A.). The campaign also
includes legendary Apollo astronaut Buzz Aldrin and a 30 second Super Bowl
advertisement. For a chance to win, register at www.AXEApollo.com.

"When a global brand leader like Unilever makes a significant commitment to a
product like our Lynx®, it is a clear sign that commercial spaceflight has
entered the main stream of worldwide commerce and truly is the Next Big
Thing," stated Andrew Nelson, Chief Operating Officer of XCOR Aerospace,
"Expect to keep seeing more good news from SXC as they ramp up in 2013!"
