Zero-G Corporation Partners With Sharper Image
Zero Gravity Corporation (Zero-G),
the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless
flights, told ANN Wednesday the Sharper Image Corporation will
exclusively market and sell seats on Zero-G's public flights. The
experience offered by Zero-G is the only commercial opportunity on
Earth for individuals to experience true "weightlessness" without
going to space.
Reservations for seats on the Zero-G Experience will be made
available through Sharper Image's 187 specialty-retail stores,
their monthly catalog and at the retailer's website beginning May
15. The agreement calls for Sharper Image to make a significant
seat guarantee for the first year, and a sizeable marketing
commitment through their catalog, online, and in-store
"Sharper Image is the highest quality retail name for
cutting-edge products, and we believe its brand and customer base
is a great match with the Zero-G audience," said Dr. Peter H.
Diamandis, CEO and Co-Founder of Zero-G (shown below). "The general
public now has convenient access to an incredible adventure that
was previously only available to a select few. Sharper Image will
help provide our exclusive Zero-Gravity experience to anyone who
ever wanted to fly like superman or float like a butterfly."
Jerry Levin, Chairman and CEO of Sharper Image said, "I recently
went weightless with Zero-G; it was truly an amazing experience and
I am eager for our customers to have access to it. We look forward
to sharing the opportunity with thousands of people. It is exactly
the type of product that our customers have come to know as part of
the unique, Sharper Image brand."
Zero-G also will be featured on the cover of Sharper Image's
Father's Day catalog. Regular Zero-G flights depart from Las Vegas
and the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
The Zero-G Experience is the identical weightless flight
encounter used by NASA to train its astronauts, and used by Ron
Howard and Tom Hanks to film Apollo 13. Weightless flight is an
experience that few have tried, but those who have call it amazing
and life-changing. Martha Stewart, Billy Bush, Burt Rutan and cast
members of "The Apprentice" and "The Biggest Loser" are just a few
notable passengers who've flown with Zero-G and proclaimed it to be
one of the most thrilling experiences of their lives.
