AIRLINE INDUSTRY INFORMATION-(C)1997-2010 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

NASA on Friday announced that the deadline for undergraduate students to submit their team proposals to its Reduced Gravity Education Program must be received by Midnight on 27 October 2010.

NASA's Reduced Gravity Education Flight Program is designed to give aspiring explorers a chance to propose, design and fabricate a reduced gravity experiment; selected teams will get to evaluate and test their experiment aboard a modified Boeing 727 jetliner provided by the Zero-Gravity Corporation of Las Vegas.

Zero-Gravity Corp. will conduct the flights in cooperation with the Reduced Gravity Office at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The flights will be conducted in cooperation with Zero-Gravity Corp where the aircraft will fly approximately 30 climbs and dips during experimental flights to produce periods of weightlessness and hyper-gravity ranging from zero gravity to twice the Earth's gravity.
