Congratulations to the SXC astronauts that successfully completed their first air ZeroG flight on Friday 15th of March. This was the first ever commercial public flight in Europe arranged by Avico and Novespace and offered through Spaceport Sweden’s space adventures and astronaut training program in collaboration with SXC. We look forward to many more missions offering the unique sensation of weightlessness under the instructions of ESA astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy.

Paris, 4 December 2012 (Novespace PR) – –
  Who has never dreamed of emulating the astronauts or their childhood comic book or science fiction heroes, flying weightlessly and freely through the air?
