0-G Launch, a Washington DC-based provider of the Space Jet horizontal rocket air-launch and microgravity services aircraft, and SpaceLand, a non-governmental weightless R&D agency offering space-related educational and training programs, as well as engineering and operational support through its "Centers of Excellence for Microgravity," today announced their signed agreement to initiate exclusive zero-gravity parabolic flights from Switzerland, Italy, and Mauritius serving STEM user communities and tourists in respective continents.
As first part of this agreement, 0-G Launch plans to fly its specially modified Boeing 757 Space Jet to SpaceLand training centers to provide 0-G parabolic flight experiences to consumers and researchers on a yearly recurring basis. SpaceLand will organize all ground-based programs, training and facilities, and 0-G Launch will provide all aircraft-based flight operations.
"We are excited about our partnership with SpaceLand, an international provider of high-quality microgravity training facilities and weightless research program development services for consumers as well as for scientists and high-tech innovators, by offering amazing zero-gravity, Martian-gravity and Lunar-gravity parabolic flight experiences with our Space Jet fleet. We envision our first parabolic flights to start in late 2023 in the USA, and thereafter expand to various global locations with the help of our great partners," said Robert Feierbach, Chief Executive Officer and Founder of 0-G Launch.
"Our game-changing Centers of Excellence in holistic-lifestyle sites will satisfy strong market demand for low-cost access to microgravity. Based on our world records for 0-G STEM R&D with people from 11 to 93 years of age, and also for 100% disabled persons, we follow on our earlier pathfinder missions from the NASA KSC Space-Shuttle Landing Facility with breakthrough techno-testing and human-longevity-extension R&D conducted for a Nobel-Prize-winner. At our SpaceLand Centers, anybody can experience immersive 'space environments' with low-gravity ground & underwater facilities and edu-research labs in future-looking habitats designed for Mars, prior to boarding a Space Jet™ microgravity flight at a fraction of current market costs," said Dr. Carlo Viberti. "We are opening Space for All."
