High-End Retailer To Exclusively Market Zero-G Weightless Flights

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 displays.

"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.
