Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) is a privately held company whose mission is to make the excitement and adventure of weightlessness accessible to everyone. Based in Arlington, Va., ZERO-G is the first and only FAA-approved provider of weightless flights to the general public; entertainment and film industries; corporate and incentive markets; non-profit organizations; research and education sectors; as well as foreign and domestic government agencies.
Founded in 1993 by X PRIZE Foundation Chairman Peter H. Diamandis, M.D.; former NASA Mission Specialist Byron K. Lichtenberg, Ph.D.; and former NASA engineer Ray Cronise. ZERO-G’s founders worked for over a decade to secure FAA approval for G-FORCE ONE®, a specially modified Boeing 727-200, to take passengers on commercial weightless flights.
Since launching the ZERO-G Experience® in October 2004, the company has conducted over 500 weightless flights and flown over 15,000 people from around the world. In January 2008, Space Adventures, Ltd. acquired ZERO-G as a wholly owned subsidiary. Space Adventures offers spaceflight opportunities to the global marketplace. Their clients have traveled over 36 million miles in space.
ZERO-G operates under the highest safety standards as set by the FAA (Part-121). For more information, visit www.GoZeroG.com.
