Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. Signs Space Act Agreement with
NASA Ames Research Center
BOCA RATON, Fla.— (January 14, 2016),– Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc.'s (ZGSI or the Company) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI), an agricultural biotechnology public company commercializing its technology derived from and designed for Space with significant applications on Earth, announced today that it has signed a Reimbursable Space Act Agreement (the Space Act Agreement) with NASA Ames Research Center (ARC) to evaluate ZGSI’s nutrient delivery system for commercial agriculture. Pursuant to the Space Act Agreement, the Company shall provide certain funding for research, but shall own the resulting intellectual property. The focus of this partnership is the development of new agricultural technologies and products. The primary objectives of the Space Act Agreement are as follows:
Further, ZGSI shall utilize the unique, ground-based, controlled environment facilities and research personnel at ARC to address a series of science-based inquires relevant to both ZGSI and NASA. The initial product to be studied is the Company’s BAM-FX™ (Bioavailable Minerals – Formula X), an ionic nutrient delivery formulation designed to effectively deliver bioavailable forms of important nutrients to support plant growth. Field testing conducted by ZGSI’s wholly owned subsidiary BAM Agricultural Solutions over the last two years in multiple crop types have indicated increases in overall yield, health and productivity compared to standard farming practices.
Zero Gravity Solutions Inc. will Fly BAM-FX™ to the International Space Station Aboard SpaceX Falcon 9 Dragon Vehicle
to Test its Effects in Microgravity on Crop Plant Growth and Nutrition
BOCA RATON, Fla.— (December 7, 2015),– Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc.'s (ZGSI or “the Company”) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI), an agricultural biotechnology public company commercializing its technology derived from and designed for Space with significant applications on Earth, in collaboration with Intrinsyx Technologies Corporation (Intrinsyx) will send BAM-FX, its agricultural product, to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard SpaceX Falcon 9 Dragon vehicle, currently scheduled to launch March 21, 2016 from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Zero Gravity’s wholly owned subsidiary BAM Agricultural Solutions, in collaboration with Intrinsyx, will work with a group of California biology students on a BAM-FX flight in space to test if the positive effects that ZGSI’s proprietary BAM-FX™ technology has had in field crops on Earth can also help plant growth in the micro-gravity environment of the ISS. If positive results are obtained BAM-FX, may have applications in advanced life support systems for long duration missions and may support a variety of future international collaborative missions intended to bring human life into space and to help establish extra-terrestrial colonies in our solar system.
