NASA Gives Zero-G $4.7 Million for Weightless Flights

NASA has awarded Zero-G, the private company providing weightless flights on a jet, $4.7 million contract to give Astronauts training aboard their flights. Good for you NASA.

Florida Today says it is a $25 million contract. I will look into it.

[update] Okay according to Zero G's web site they are both right. The base 1 year contract is $4.7 million with four one year extensions at $5 million each for a total of $25.4 million.
