SciAccess is proud to announce our newest program- Mission: AstroAccess!

Through the Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) and with the generous support of the Whitesides Foundation, Mission: AstroAccess will launch a group of disabled scientists, veterans, students, athletes, and artists on a historic parabolic flight as the first step in a progression toward flying a diverse range of people to space. They will experience weightlessness and carry out lunar gravity, Martian gravity, and zero gravity observations and experiments investigating how the physical environment aboard space vessels should be modified so that all astronauts and explorers, regardless of disability on Earth, can live, work, and thrive in space. Our first parabolic flight will launch in October 2021. Sign up here for updates.
