Sevart's team was inspired by the space age of the 1960s. The Space Needle opened in 1962 during the World's Fair.
Sevart is partnering with Virginia-based Space Adventures to send a person to orbit. The trip is worth $110,000.
The contest will consist of several levels. Anyone can sign up than a computer will then narrow the field to 1,000 people.
Then there will be public voting.
