goal is to create the personal spaceflight revolution in
partnership with innovative companies like 7 UP. Together we are
making space travel accessible to the average citizen."
"7 UP was introduced over 75 years ago in the dawn of aviation
when Charles Lindbergh and the spirit of St. Louis changed aviation
history," said Steven Jarmon, VP of Marketing Resources, Cadbury

starting with the first lemon lime soft drink which began the
