Astronauts4Hire to Sponsor Next-generation Suborbital Researchers Conference

Astronauts4Hire Press Release

Astronauts4Hire is pleased to announce that it has become a sponsor of the 2011 Next-generation Suborbital Researchers Conference (NSRC) to be held in Orlando, Florida from February 28 through March 2, 2011.

Brian Shiro, President and CEO of Astronauts4Hire, joined the conference’s scientific organizing committee, chaired by Dr. Alan Stern of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. “Astronauts4Hire grew out of the 2010 NSRC,” says Shiro, “so it is fitting that we give back to the suborbital research community by sponsoring the 2011 NSRC. This will be a prime opportunity for A4H to demonstrate how far it’s come in its first year and where it’s going in the future.”

During the conference, members of Astronauts4Hire will give presentations on the organization in general, its qualification standards for suborbital astronauts, training plans, and initial results from the Vostok Pty Ltd space beer drinkability study done in collaboration with Saber Astronautics Australia and the 4 Pines Brewery on a Zero G Corporation flight planned for November 2010.
