Taking further steps towards delivering the world’s most comprehensive, extreme environment research, test and training services, Blue Abyss, and 0-G Launch have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the aim of launching parabolic flights from the UK.
During the collaborative missions, Blue Abyss and 0-G Launch will use a specially modified Boeing 757 airframe to create micro, hypo and hyper-gravity environments, similar to what will be experienced by astronauts travelling to and visiting the Moon or Mars (16% and 38% of earth’s gravity respectively).
“BLUE ABYSS IS SETTING-UP A STATE-OF-THE-ART FACILITY TO BECOME THE WORLD’S PREMIER DEEP-SEA AND SPACE EXTREME ENVIRONMENT RESEARCH, TRAINING AND TEST CENTRE. BY ADDING OUR SPECIALLY-MODIFIED SPACE JET ™ COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT AS PART OF THESE UNIQUE TRAINING PROGRAMS, WE WILL BE OFFERING HIGH-PRECISION PARABOLIC FLIGHTS FOR ZERO GRAVITY, LUNAR GRAVITY AND MARTIAN GRAVITY TO THE MIX. WE ARE EXTREMELY PLEASED TO HAVE 0-G LAUNCH COLLABORATE WITH BLUE ABYSS ON JOINTLY OFFERING THIS HIGH-QUALITY TRAINING PATHWAY TO PREPARING HUMANITY FOR INCREASED EXPLORATION OF SPACE, THEREBY ALSO CREATING MANY NEW SERVICES AND TECHNOLOGIES IN BENEFIT OF EARTH.Robert Feierbach, 0-G Launch Chief Executive Officer and Founder
