“We’re thrilled to partner with the iconic OREO brand to be the first to bring a cookie fan aboard a Space Perspective flight,” said Jane Poynter, Founder and Co-CEO, Space Perspective. “Together, we have put innovation, accessibility, playfulness and the spirit of exploration at the heart of this partnership – not to mention taking OREO cookies where they’ve never gone before!

Space Perspective’s team more broadly has been instrumental in the development of every U.S. human spacecraft for the past 40 years,” according to the announcement.
