Need a telescope? Crave a NASA bomber jacket? Want to show off your cosmic leanings on a T-shirt?

Starting today (June 6) SPACE.com is running a sweepstakes on Facebook to give away T-shirts, bomber jackets and telescopes, among other prizes.

The sweepstakes, available only to U.S. residents age 18 and up, ends Aug. 29, at 11:59 p.m. ET. SPACE.com Facebook fans can get another chance to win by sharing with their Facebook friends.

The prizes:

Grand Prizes: Three participants will win an Orion SpaceProbe 130ST 5.1-inch reflector telescope.

2nd Prizes: Each month, four participants win a NASA bomber jacket or autographed copy of "Light This Candle: The Life and Times of Alan Shepard."

3rd Prizes: Each week, 10 participants win a SPACE.com T-shirt or copy of the book "Life's Little Mysteries."

The T-shirt slogan, "Give Me Some Space," won out over several possibilities in a separate voting campaign conducted on SPACE.com and Facebook.
