(AP) NBC says it will air a competition show with an out-of-this-world prize: a ride into space.


The network said Thursday that TV producer Mark Burnett is teaming with Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic on "Space Race," a game where the winner will get a ride on Virgin's aircraft atop the Earth's atmosphere.


Virgin has been testing its rocket-powered space vehicle with the goal of taking paid customers into space. Virgin said the plan is for Branson and his children to be the first civilians to take a ride sometime next year.


Burnett produces "The Voice" on NBC and "Survivor" on CBS.
