ZGSI’s BAM-FX™ Featured on NBC’s the List

ZGSI's BAM-FX™ technology is being spotlighted for its potential as a solution to enhance food security for the world's increasing population. With the completion of the requirements necessary to license BAM-FX™ for sale and distribution in the state of California, this brings the Company one step closer toward the commercial sale of BAM-FX™ in the agricultural market.

Corporate Overview

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.

SpaceX's Elon Musk unveils spacecraft designed to fly astronauts to space station

SpaceX's Dragon Version 2 crewed spacecraft has a sleek interior design, complete with a large tablet-like computer that swivels down in front of the capsule's tan leather seats. The manned space capsule can ferry up to seven astronauts to and from destinations like the International Space Station, Musk said during the reveal, which SpaceX webcast live online from its headquarters in Hawthorne, California. "I think it's really a big leap forward in technology," Musk said. "It really takes things to the next level."

The new Dragon V2 is an updated version of the company's robotic Dragon capsule — currently used to take cargo to the space station and bring materials back to Earth. At the moment, the Dragon is the only robotic cargo vessel that can bring supplies back to the planet from the station. SpaceX's new spacecraft is designed to be reusable and it should be able to touchdown back on land with the accuracy of a helicopter, Musk added.
