. Phil Mills NewSpace Models
Phil Mills builds scale models to order of Spacecraft and Launch Vehicles. Each model is individually scratch built to order in Saudi Arabia where Phil lives and works. All materials for the models are brought in to Saudi from the UK as modelling materials are not available in the Kingdom. To produce the models Phil draws his own plans gathering information from the internet. The models are made to represent how the actual vehicles do or will appear in space. If new information appears or a configuration changes in the course of vehicle development, later models will represent this. As a consequence models built at a certain time will be unique representations done at that time. Each model comes with a display stand.

The Space Consulting Network is a new website whose goal is to build a global online directory of space experts by specialization and geographic location. The website aims to be a portal for creating a "one-stop" site and forum to find partners for future projects, to find expertise for research and academic program activities, or for employers and companies looking for people on their project teams.

The website is open to everyone who would like to advertise their specialization – not just consultants but everyone who has the desire to share their knowledge for profit or non-profit purposes. The success of the website depends on the community it builds. To join, go to

. Stardance
Stardance – "Wherever humans go we bring our arts, and in zero-gravity we will create amazing new forms of art never before seen, as our imaginations are set free by weightlessness."

Inspired by Spider and Jeanne Robinson’s popular series of novels, "Jeanne Robinson's Stardance Experience" is a film that combines artistic and humanistic themes with the backdrop of science and space exploration–exemplifying the grandeur, intrigue and promise of space, while exploring the grace of dance unhindered by gravity, and the expansion and growth of mankind as we reach for the stars.

The film (slated to be produced for IMAX and other large format theaters for initial release) also serves the filmmaker's goal to re-ignite humanity's fire to return to space–to reach and inspire everyday people and communicate the majesty, beauty, mystery and transcendence that await us all, while showing an attainable and realistic vision of mankind's future in space. Only from that perspective can we hope to create futures that exemplify the best in humanity: our propensity to dream, dance, and evolve.

. Virginia Space Flight Academy
Virginia Space Flight Academy offers weeklong residential summer camps for students ages eleven to fifteen years old. Space Flight Adventure Camp brings campers from across the nation to Wallops Island, Virginia to spend a week exploring space sciences at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility. Partnering with NASA, NOAA and the U.S. Navy, Space Flight Adventure Camp provides access to a behind the scenes look at the United States rocketry program. In addition to a NASA backstage pass, campers collaborate on two major projects, rocketry and robotics. Campers build and launch several types of model rockets, and work in teams of two or three to build and program small robots using Lego© Mindstorms© NXT systems. By weeks end, campers have gained first hand experience of a wide range of aerospace careers in an atmosphere designed to fuel enthusiasm.

“Capturing the imagination of today's youth is the first step in providing the scientists, technicians and engineers of tomorrow.” – Robert Marshall, Executive Director, Virginia Space Flight Academy.

. Zero Gravity Corporation
Zero Gravity Corporation is a privately held space entertainment company whose mission is to make the excitement and adventure of space accessible to the public. ZERO-G is based in Las Vegas and Florida and is the first and only FAA-approved provider of commercial weightless flight to the general public. The experience offered by Zero-G is the only commercial opportunity on Earth for individuals to experience true "weightlessness" without going to space. This is the identical weightless flight experience used by NASA to train its astronauts and used by Ron Howard and Tom Hanks to film Apollo-13. The Zero-G Experience consists of a brief training session for passengers followed by a 90-minute flight aboard G-Force- One, during which parabolic maneuvers are performed. The controlled ascent and descent of the plane allows Flyers to experience Martian gravity (1/3-gravity), Lunar gravity (1/6-gravity), and zero gravity. The Zero-G Experience provides its Flyers with twice the amount of weightless time achieved in a typical sub-orbital flight into space. ZERO-G operates under the highest safety standards as set by the FAA (Part-121) with its partner Amerijet International of Ft. Lauderdale Florida. Aircraft operations take place under the same regulations set for large commercial passenger airliners.

G-Force-One regularly flies from both Signature Air Terminal at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas and the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Central Florida.
