Photoshoot in space; Estee Lauder paid NASA 94 lakh

Estée Lauder may be known for its famous night serum “revolutionary,” but now with the help of NASA, there’s more to that catchphrase than meets the eye. The serum is set to orbit the Earth every 93 minutes when its sent into space to join the astronauts aboard the International Space Station. The cosmetics giant will pay $17,500 per hour for the astronauts to take photos of their serum in space. Coincidentally or not the Space Station orbits the earth at 17,500 miles per hour.

The International Space Station is an orbiting laboratory for scientific research, but it’s the photo ops and viral videos that capture the public’s imagination. Estée Lauder will get video and photos of their out-of-this-world product in the most photographed spot on the space station the Cupola. The photos are not to be used in print or television advertising, but instead on social media, according to NASA. The astronauts won’t be using the product or be featured in the pictures. This new commercial agreement opens up opportunities to offset the costs of operating this international orbiting laboratory, which is about $4 billion a year.
