Zero-G Flights From Ames

NASA has announced that the commercial "Vomit Comet" company Zero-G will use NASA runways and provide commercial services to the Ames Research Center. "'We're delighted to have signed this historic agreement with ZERO-G,' said Ames Director S. Pete Worden. 'This will further NASA's goal of pursuing mutually beneficial partnerships with the emerging commercial space sector.'... The agreement also calls for NASA and ZERO-G to develop research collaborations starting this fall."
This is a prime example of how a symbiotic relationship can exist between the public and private spaceflight industries, and that the legislation of our nation should promote both.

Email, Fax, Call, and Visit your Congressmen and tell them what is happening in California with Zero-G, and why they should pass some of the upcoming pro-space legislation.
