Virgin Galactic Flyers get their first taste of no gravity
Virgin Galactic has teamed up with a company called ZERO-G to allow people who purchased seats on Virgin Galactic flights to get an early taste what weightlessness feels like. The participants climbed aboard a special Boeing 727 known as G-Force One.
The special aircraft goes into the sky and operates much like NASA's famous Vomit Comet. Aircraft flies in parabolic arcs that allow it to simulate weightlessness without having to go into space. ZERO-G is the first FAA approved provider of commercial weightless airplane flights for the public.
“We are excited about this new relationship and look forward to introducing even more Virgin Galactic Future Astronauts to the amazing feeling of weightlessness,” said Terese Brewster, President and COO of ZERO-G. “These flights are definitely an enhancement to their upcoming trip on SpaceShipTwo.”
