As highlighted by Pascal Jaussi, Founder and CEO of S3: « We are reopening the ticketing for S3's ZeroG Experience as a first step to achieve our company vision of "Space for All," giving everyone a chance to experience weightlessness similar to that felt by astronauts in Space, at an affordable price».
