Will you tune in for the 50th anniversary episode? Listen to a couple of the 50th anniversary themed audio dramas from Big Finish? Or maybe you’ll read a tie-in novel or two or finally watch some classic Who on DVD?
Those are all good ideas, but a set of intrepid fans want to celebrate the big anniversary in an entirely different way — by launching a replica of the TARDIS into outer space.
Using Kickstarter, a group of fans has built a replica TARDIS and is hoping to raise $33,000 to put the replica into Earth’s orbit.
The group has a couple of levels of support that fans can consider. For a dollar, you get the pride of knowing you helped launch the TARDIS into orbit. For $15, you can get your name put on a hard drive going into orbit. For a bit more, you can get a Tweet and your name on the hard drive. For $45 you get the Tweet, your name and a t-shirt.
The group says that orbital TARDIS will be one of several items in a rocket payload that is launched into outer space. Should the group go beyond their goal of $33,000, they will put a larger TARDIS replica into orbit.
