Zero-G is the first company to offer a 0-gravity experience to non-astronauts. I don’t know that that is such a good idea, but I’m all for it personally. The company is on a tour where they’ll offer these flights for about $3,000.00 in airports such as L.A., New York, and Atlanta. The package cost gets you a full day with a veteran astronaut (so you can ask dumb questions), and several gravity reductions on it’s way to and from 0 G’s. The flight takes place in a modified Boeing 727 and takes a parabolic path through the air. It is the “upswing” that gives the riders 0 G’s for approximately 30 seconds. That’s more than enough time to free-spin, puke, and hurl out of control into it. As a martyr for the cause (hopefully not, but just in case), I’m willing to take the Atlanta flight. There’s the matter of cost, which I will accept in the way of donations. Contact me if you wish to put me in 0 G’s. If this works out, I’m going to create banners and such to get me on Mars. Donations may be sent to the “Put Olaf in Space” campaign.
