I have no experience with ZERO G flying – is that okay?!

It’s perfect!!

What is a Zero Gravity Flight?

A Zero Gravity Flight is a plane ride that recreates the feeling of weightlessness, like astronaut in space. The winner will fly with Zero Gravity Corporation in the United States of America (www.gozerog.com). Their experience includes 15 top loops – that means that once in the air you will have the chance to experience weightlessness 15 times!

How much do these raffle tickets cost?

Each ticket costs €22.50
What is this raffle for? Who is getting the money?
The money raised from the raffle will firstly cover the expenses for sending a person on the ZERO-G flight (which is worth approx €7,000!) – and all remaining money will go toward our fund for sending Irish students attend space related courses, including the International Space University. Thus far we have partially fund at least one student every year to attend the Summer Space Studies Programme or the Masters in Space Studies at the International Space University! See here for details on the people we have funded so far. Space course are usually quite costly to attend and we want to give students a helping hand – unfortunately funding for students to attend space related courses was cut during the recession and has yet to be re-instituted.

Can I buy a raffle ticket for a friend?

Absolutely! However, the raffle tickets are transferable as gifts only and may not be resold.
