Zero Gravity establishes Zero-G Weightless Lab

  • 17-Mar-2010 03:00 EDT

Zero Gravity has established the Zero-G Weightless Lab as an affordable way to conduct formal research in a microgravity environment. Client projects have included studies in biomedical and pharmaceutical research, fluid and fundamental physics, materials science, aerospace engineering, space exploration hardware, and human space habitation.

Zero Gravity Corp. (Zero-G) has established the Zero-G Weightless Lab, a specially designed two-day program providing the only commercial access to Martian, Lunar, zero, and hyper gravity environments for scientific research. The program is open to academic, corporate, and government agency applicants, who must submit a Research Proposal Package to be reviewed by Zero-G's research staff and its airline partner, Amerijet International Cargo. The lab offers clients the availability to charter a section of the plane rather than the entire plane, for the two-day program and features 25 parabolas, adequate storage space, and a containment unit for smaller research projects. Two flights have already been scheduled. On July 22-23, the plane will fly out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and on Sept. 17-18, out of Memphis, TN.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
