Zero-G to Use Space Shuttle’s Runway at Kennedy Space Center

Zero-G, the first and only company approved by the FAA to conduct weightless flights for the general public, has reached an agreement with NASA to use the space shuttle’s runway and landing facility at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida.

The first flight for the public will launch on June 24, and Zero-G will conduct up to 280 weightless flights per year from KSC.

“We are extremely pleased to have ZERO-G sign on as a regular user of our Shuttle Landing Facility,” Jim Kennedy, Director of Kennedy Space Center, said. “This is the ideal place for activities that share the experience of space flight with the general public.”
