SpaceX Dragon splashdown

SPLASHDOWN! EXPERIMENT USING BAM-FX TO STUDY ITS EFFECTS ON SEEDLING GROWTH AND NUTRITION IN MICROGRAVITY HAS ARRIVED BACK ON EARTH.

The SpaceX Dragon vehicle carrying the student research project using our BAM-FX micronutrient technology was among approximately 3,600 pounds of science experiments and other gear that returned to Earth on March 19, 2017 after a month’s stay on the International Space Station. This experiment, studying the effects of BAM-FX on broccoli seedling growth and nutrition in microgravity, is aimed at significantly advancing how fresh, nutrient-dense food is grown on long-duration space missions. The seedlings flown on the ISS are now headed back to NASA Ames Research Center, where they will be analyzed by plant stress physiologists and the students involved in the experiment. Results are expected to take about a month to process. Click here to read more about Dragon’s return.

Space-n-KeyholeZero Gravity Solutions, Inc. is a biotechnology company focused on commercializing technology derived from and designed for Space with significant applications on Earth. These technologies seek to improve world agriculture by providing valuable solutions to challenges facing humanity, including threats to world agriculture and the ability to feed the world's rapidly growing population. The Company's business model is currently focused on its two primary business segments: 1) BAM-FX, which is a cost effective, ionic nutrient delivery system for plants that can deliver minerals and micronutrients systemically at the cellular level of a plant, and 2) Directed Selection, which relates to the production and alteration of new varieties of novel stem cells with unique and beneficial characteristics in the prolonged zero/micro gravity environment of the International Space Station. These can be patented for commercial sale to third parties in the agricultural and human regenerative medical markets. Zero Gravity Solutions has two wholly-owned, operating subsidiaries BAM Agricultural Solutions, Inc. and Zero Gravity Life Sciences, Inc.

The Company is focused on implementing a near-term revenue generation plan through the introduction of the Company's first commercial product, BAM-FX™, to the world's agricultural markets. BAM-FX is an ionic nutrient delivery system for agriculture. The Company conducted field trials on a variety of crops in laboratory and academic settings as well as in field applications on grower/end-user crops. These trials showed exceedingly positive results, resulting in a significant increase in yield, quality and nutritional value in a variety of crops. The Company is beginning the commercial roll out plan for BAM-FX into the world's agricultural markets.

The Company's mid-to-longer term objectives relate to the commercialization of ZGSI's space derived Directed Selection technology, which predicts that plant and animal stem cells exposed to prolonged microgravity in space can be endowed with new characteristics beneficial to society. In conjunction with our collaborators, National Aeronautics and Space Administration ("NASA"), the United States Department of Agriculture ("USDA") and the University of Florida, over the past six years, we have conducted scientific studies on six NASA sponsored flights to the International Space Station ("ISS"). These experiments have demonstrated that the gene expression of plant cells in zero/microgravity changes substantially, and furthermore, provided us with strong evidence that these changes can be directed toward beneficial attributes.

The commercialization of products developed in the zero gravity environment represents a coming of age for new products that cannot be developed here on Earth. Zero Gravity Solutions is positioned to be a world leader in this new scientific paradigm.

Zero Gravity Solutions Announces Successful Results of Seedling Growth Experiment Using BAM-FX on the International Space Station (ISS) and a Second Experiment Launched on the SpaceX CRS-11 Dragon Cargo Mission is Now On Board the ISS

BOCA RATON, Fla.— (June 14, 2017),– Zero Gravity Solutions, Inc. (“ZGSI” or the “Company”) (Pink Sheets: ZGSI), an agricultural biotechnology public company announced favorable results from the previously announced educational research experiment using its BAM-FX micronutrient product on the International Space Station (ISS). A second educational experiment utilizing BAM-FX®, launched to the ISS aboard the SpaceX 11 Cargo Mission to the International Space Station on June 3, 2017 has reached the ISS.

The first BAM-FX experiment was an educational collaboration between V3PO, NanoRacks, LLC, Valley Christian High School of San Jose, California, Intrinsyx Technologies Corporation (ITC), and NASA’s Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. It was designed to study the growth and nutritional effects of BAM-FX (a patented precision zinc and copper micronutrient formulation) on broccoli seedlings in microgravity and was led by two plant stress physiologists, Dr. John Freeman of ITC and Dr. David Bubenheim of NASA Ames’ Biospheric Science Branch.
