Out of more than 100 participants from all over the world, 23 lucky contestants have emerged as the winners in Unilever's 3-day competition at the Axe Apollo Space Camp.

Among them is Mandla Maseko from South Africa, the second South African and first Black South African to be selected to be amongst the next generation of space heroes. Maseko, from Mabopane township in Pretoria, is a 25-year-old aspiring DJ.

The winners will receive tickets to fly on XCOR Aerospace's Lynx space plane from Space Expedition Corporation, which is expected to start flying participants to space in 2015.
