Test Flight Temporarily Put on Ice

Astronauts4Hire's first job testing Vostok Space Beer in microgravity will have to wait until February. The parabolic trajectory flight was originally scheduled for November 19 but had been postponed to December 18 by the request of the flight provider. Unfortunately, the December flight was recalled due to poor weather. The next available opportunity will be in late February.

All preparations for the experiment have gone smoothly, and everything is in order for when we receive the green light to fly. After our original September announcement of the contract to test beer in microgravity, Astronauts4Hire has received tremendous worldwide media attention.  We thank everyone who has shown an interest in this work and ask you to wait a while longer for the historic flight to take place.

From all of us at Astronauts4Hire, Happy Holidays!  Great things are in store for commercial human spaceflight in the coming year.  Look for another announcement from us soon how you can join us!
