MTV JOINS FORCES WITH AWARD-WINNING ACTIVIST EDDIE NDOPU FOR HIS HISTORIC VOYAGE INTO SPACE

Ndopu Will Deliver a Groundbreaking Message from Space to the UN General Assembly and Raise Awareness About the Rights of Disabled Young People Everywhere

NEW YORK, NY - Thursday, November 29 - MTV today revealed it will join forces with award-winning activist and humanitarian Eddie Ndopu to follow his monumental voyage as the first physically disabled person to travel into space. Ndopu is leading a groundbreaking campaign to deliver a powerful message to the UN General Assembly on behalf of young people everywhere who have ever felt excluded by society. The announcement was made ahead of International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3rd. The untitled project will begin production in 2019.

Ndopu, a 27-year-old man from South Africa, was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at birth and given a life span of five years. With an advocacy career that spans over a decade pioneering for rights of disabled young people around the world, and a Master's Degree in Public Policy from Oxford University, he has defied all odds and now has his sights set on making history in outer space.

MTV will document everything from Ndopu enlisting an aerospace company to facilitate the flight, to his innermost thoughts as he gets closer to lift off, and finally, his celestial journey and message to world leaders.
