Company Offers The Public A Chance To Experience Spaceflight

Anyone Can Apply For A Chance To Take A Suborbital Flight

In support of its mission to broaden public awareness of the benefits of space exploration, the Aerospace Research & Engineering Systems Institute, Inc. is giving the public the opportunity to take the ride of a lifetime to the edge of space. This event is designed to give the opportunity for a member of the public to fly aboard a commercial spacecraft who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity by raising funds to cover the cost of the flight.

Members of the public are invited to apply for this exciting opportunity to fly to the edge of space. ARES Institute is accepting applications from through our website through December 31, 2012. At the conclusion of the registration period, one person who registered prior to December 31, 2012 will be provided the opportunity to assist in conducting scientific research on a suborbital spaceflight.

Specifically, the person chosen to fly in space will accompany our own investigators on a suborbital spaceflight during which selected scientific experiments will be conducted. The participant will not only fly to the edge of space and experience weightlessness, but will also assist scientists and researchers with hands-on experiments in support of the Spacecoast Plasma & High-energy Electrostatics Laboratory, a state of the art fusion research facility currently in development.

ARES Institute is engaged in innovative programs to stimulate interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education among secondary and college-level students. The organization's mission also includes public outreach activities to raise public awareness and support of space exploration.

Specifically, ARES Institute is working to establish a hands-on space-oriented engineering program to give students the opportunity to work with real rockets and scientific payloads, stimulating their interest in related fields while providing valuable skills training for the aerospace workforce of the future.
