Experience true weightlessness and go full throttle!
Zero Gravity Corporation is a privately held space entertainment and tourism company whose mission is to make the excitement and adventure of space accessible to the public. Their weightless experience is like nothing on earth. Boomer astronaut-superhero-wannabees need to explore this unbelievable website. You can take advantage of education and research opportunities never before offered to those without a Ph.D. or without actually going into space!
In early 2006, Northrop Grumman Corporation and ZERO-G embarked on the “Northrop Grumman Weightless Flights of Discovery.” Nearly 250 teachers from 49 states and 22 countries received cutting-edge training that benefited almost 10,000 students. Every year more educators are added and more teachers are trained through ZERO-G Education Programs. Educators bring back to their classroom curriculums and exciting resources that include experiments, flight pictures, and videos. Through the “Weightless Flights of Discovery Program,” the Northrop Grumman Foundation along with ZERO-G continues to advance U.S. science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and education. Professional development programs for educators offer opportunities to enhance subjects through unique experimentation in a truly weightless environment. The turn-key teacher development programs integrate into existing classroom curriculum meeting National Math, Science, and Technology standards.
Space Florida was created to strengthen Florida’s position as the global leader in aerospace research. Space Florida and ZERO-G initiated the Stephen Hawking Microgravity Education Research Center. Educators, students, and researchers learn about microgravity, develop experiments for parabolic flight, and integrate the results in their classrooms, laboratories, and corporations. The ZERO-G Weightless Lab provides opportunities for new technological advances in biomedical and pharmaceutical research, fluid and fundamental physics, materials science, aerospace engineering, space exploration hardware and human space habitation, and is available as a means to conduct experiments or test equipment prior to spaceflight. Proposals from universities, corporations, government and individuals are encouraged.
The experience offered by ZERO-G is the only commercial opportunity for individuals to experience true “weightlessness” without going into space. ZERO-G’s attention to detail, service and quality of experience has set the foundation for exhilarating adventure-based tourism along with great opportunities for educators and students to learn about existing programs, or how they can establish one. You can actually fly aboard G-FORCE ONE, a specially modified Boeing 727. G-FORCE ONE weightlessness is achieved by doing aerobatic maneuvers known as parabolas. Specially trained pilots perform these maneuvers. Parabolic arcs are performed allowing travelers to float, flip and soar. The ZERO-G Experience includes 12-15 parabolas, flight suit, merchandise, a re-gravitation celebration, certificate of weightless completion, and photos and video of your once-in-a-lifetime experience. Choose from primary locations at the Signature Air Terminal at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, NV; the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, FL; or the Bristow Air Center in Titusville, FL. Occasionally throughout the year flights are scheduled in Seattle, Los Angeles, New York and Washington, DC. In addition, clients who charter a flight can request locations as long as it can accommodate a Boeing 727-200 aircraft. For a new twist on eloping, you can even plan a weightless wedding!
We hope your curiosity will lead you to check out this remarkable website for the latest space buzz and to organize your own blast off adventure.
