Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc.’s BAM-FX® was Successfully Delivered to the International Space Station on the SpaceX CRS-10 Dragon Cargo Mission
Experiment to Study the Effects of BAM-FX on Seedling Growth and Nutrition in Microgravity
BOCA RATON, Fla.— (February 23, 2017),– Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. (“ZGSI” or the “Company”) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI), an agricultural biotechnology public company commercializing its technology derived from and designed for Space with significant applications for agriculture on Earth, announced that its research experiment using its BAM-FX micronutrient product was successfully delivered today to the International Space Station (ISS) on the SpaceX CRS-10 Dragon cargo resupply mission launched February 19, 2017 from historic pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
In collaboration with NASA and Intrinsyx Technologies Corporation (ITC), the BAM-FX experiments, led by two plant stress physiologists, Dr. John Freeman of ITC and Dr.Dr. David Bubenheim (NASA Biospheric Science Branch code SGE), will study the growth and nutritional effects of our patented micronutrient product BAM-FX in broccoli seedlings in microgravity.
The focus of two separate, but related experiments, BAM-FX and V3PO (Vegetative Propagation of Plants in Orbit) are focused on advancing the science necessary to promote the growth of fresh, nutrient-dense food for astronauts on long-duration space missions. This experimental flight opportunity is made available by NanoRacks, LLC via its Space Act Agreement with NASA’s U.S. National Lab on the International Space Station.
BAM-FX (Bio-Available Minerals-Formula X), a product manufactured and marketed by ZGSI’s wholly owned subsidiary, BAM Agricultural Solutions, is a solution of special ionic minerals, which can not only correct nutrient deficiencies, but may also increase yield, quality and nutrition with less inputs, by-products and waste.
