From the Seattle-Post Intelligencer:
For $50, ZG Aerospace will briefly fly your business card into space next month. "You'd be surprised -- I was surprised -- at how many people take this seriously," said Tom Gonser, co-founder of the 2-year-old Seattle company.

So far, he said, 200 people have paid to put their stuff aboard the maiden flight of ZG Aerospace's 19.5-foot-tall, 775 pound ZGS-1 rocket.

Most will send business cards aloft, but some have opted for photos, letters or stamps. Larger items are also OK, so long as they're not alive, dangerous, heavier than 25 grams or larger than a 1-inch by 1- inch by 0.75-inch box ($996).
