NRP Stone, Inc. (OTC PINK:NRPI) Uplift Aerospace (NRP Stone – Symbol: NRPI) is elated to announce that the mission training for their inaugural commercial astronaut class, the Space+5, will commence this weekend from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center on a ZeroG flight with collaborating artists and research organizations.
The Space+5 zero-gravity training event will take place on Sunday, October 23rd. The five Space+ astronaut candidates will be accompanied by commercial astronaut and artist Dr. Sian Proctor, artist and producer Rob Prior, mixed-media and NFT artist Gabe Weis, and photographer Raven Trammel.
During the flight, all members of the Space+5 will be executing along the three mission directives: Science, Art, and Philanthropy. The Space+5 includes Ruben Salinas, who has been contracted by Uplift Aerospace for an upcoming suborbital space flight, along with Sydney Hamilton, Mike Mongo, Trent Tresch, and Joan Melendez-Misner. The full Space+5 class is training to support the mission and will also fly to space if an additional opportunity arises. The flight’s objectives are to prepare the astronaut candidate for moving and working in a weightless environment, gathering scientific data for human health and fitness, and exploring art creation in zero-gravity environments.
Global technology company, Lenovo, is an event sponsor and has provided all of the Space+5 and artists on the flight with the Lenovo P11 Pro Tablet for art generation as well as data collection and analytics. The tablets will be used throughout the Space+5 astronaut training, including during their upcoming spacesuit and spacecraft training at the University of Arizona and Biosphere2, for monitoring biometric data collected by wearable technology on the astronaut candidates.
The Space+5 have been sponsored by Ōura to each wear the Ōura Ring Gen 3 as a lightweight, streamlined wearable during all aspects of astronaut training. The rings will be connected to the Oura Ring app on the Lenovo tablet for onboard tracking of biometric data. The data will also be used as part of the mission’s research inquiry around the advancement of artificial intelligence for space exploration.
